We have a new unknown soldier,
Tens of thousands the world over,
Suiting up in self protection,
Facing risk of self-infection,
To care for us and those we love,
The ultimate push comes to shove,
Empathy for patients alone,
Isolated and on their own,
These soldiers of science and fact,
Facilitating last contact,
Steeling themselves from emotion,
With professional devotion,
Sadness and death their daily fight,
With few glimpses of hope and light,
Hail the unknown healthcare worker,
Pandemic-worn – still no shirker,
For their lives and for all they do,
We need many a new statue.
–Ken Donner
