Syndic No.43 ~ Laura Fisk

Tell Me the Truth

By Laura Fisk

Narrated by Kristine Doll


Everyone’s a scientist
these days
Everyone’s got the answer
the fix

Everyone knows statistics
will cite you numbers
they heard on the telly
Everyone’s got views

Everyone’s very generous
with their ideas
They share them with me
so I listen

And inside
I think
I wish they could tell me
what to do about
23 deaths in a single care home
talking to the family of someone tested positive
which guidance about PPE I should follow
what to tell my partner scared at home
