The New Heroes in Town

A new breed of heroes in town:
Unsung heroes, nothing renown.
The world's at stake their focus is prime -
Scaling these unsavory times.

Real troupers lay all on the line.
Despite danger they won't decline;
Without a flinch, they keep good pace -
Staring ole death square in the face.

Poised to die to sustain the fight,
(Many have died - have given all)
Life for a life, they'd sacrifice
In a bid to answer the call.

Still others fight on - tired, weary.
On battlegrounds - fearsome, dreary.
They're our medics... first responders;
Twenty-four-seven, working wonders.

*Footnote: Neverending thanks to our medics, first responders, and all who fall within these, or similar, categories during the pandemic. Thank you, and God Bless You.
