“Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes.” Mary Lathrap, 1895
You stumble through the hospital’s halls, the Hippocratic Oath burned in mind,
Determined to stem the tide of a disease which respects not life.
You lack masks, testing and ventilators. Reprieve does not come.
Despite your best efforts, despite 80 hour weeks, not all can be saved.
Life leaves some waiting in the halls.
