Spent

Agitated

Scorned

Assaulted

We call them heroes

Frontliners that they are

But turn them away

From their homes

On the commute

To work

To cure

To save

To spare

The world from danger

Why persecute the provider

Why evict the exhausted

The bully

Blindly

Picks the wrong prey

Scares away

Our chance

At cutting the distance

Death by ignorance
