The end of the pandemic

Is definitely going to be underwhelming.
After all the undoing
And all the disorientation
The virus will take a less prominent seat
But the havoc it wreaked
Will not be easily forgotten-
At least not at first.
But it will fade from view
As all things do.
Disaster will once again
Be a local experience,
Bad news will seem far away
As it once did
And we may slip back
Into behaving as we did before;
Like a people oblivious to the fact
That despite our diffences
And our individual immunities
Our fates are inextricably tied
Together.
