Post-COVID People Shortage

Unemployment rate:  4.2%

Before we had COVID,

there were people galore.

There were teachers in classrooms.

Clerks clerked in the store.

 There used to be plumbers

to plug up the leaks,

and snappy Park Rangers

patrolling our peaks

There were folks who ran pawn shops

and cops on the beat.

There were men driving big trucks

to sweep up the street.

There were nurses and mailmen

and men who plowed snow.

There used to be People.

Where did they go?
