4.30.20 – Emissionary Position

In Xanadu, Kubla Khan declares
“No more leaving, for the air
That escapes the stricken ones
Is poisonous.” He said this once
Eight weeks ago, or so it seems.
Due to the isolating means
In which we must separate
There is no time. There is no date.
Though good can from staying home
Like restoration of ozone.
Emissions will reduce this year!
From your homes, sing and cheer!
I tell you now, for what it’s worth,
We are helping out our Mother Earth.

Inspired by Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s “Kubla Khan
