Gigi M. Green has written an incredibly thought provoking and powerful poem during this quarantine. She makes you take that step back and really contemplate our perceptions. Take a look below and absorb her words.
JACK AND JILL 2020
What if Jack and Jill never climbed that hill
But instead were socially quarantined
Because Jill was twenty-one, a mother of two
And Jack was but nineteen.
What if Jill was a stripper who needed a fix
And Jack was her drug of choice
Is that a moral excuse to ignore her pain
And take away her voice?
What if Jack was black and Jill was white
Is this finally the year that can be alright?
Or if Jack was black and Jill was black and blue
Would that be better for you?
What if Jack and Jill did climb that hill
To fetch their piece of happiness
And instead of hate and judgement sent up
We just prayed and wished them the best.
