The Maybe Tomorrow Woman



and let your little Sister catch up

wait and let your little Brother catch up

to you,

don’t be so selfish

why do you deserve to be at the front of the line

why do you need to be first

What are you, selfish?



your turn

but first

help your friends, your neighbors, random strangers through that door

help them cross that dangerous street

be there, be helpful, don’t roll your eyes up like that.

What are you, selfish?


Wait your turn

and then and only when

the road is clear

and everyone is safe and secure on the other side

then it’s your turn to go.

But first remember to check

is there anyone behind you?

There is?

Then you better

wait your turn.

Let them go first.

Why not?

What are you, selfish?
