Their names are Forgotten.

And we pulled up in our bus,
Snapped on some gloves
Don't touch anything.

We stepped out in the sun,
Rolled up our sleeves
And took deep breaths.

You flocked toward us
A forest of brown, thirsty eyes
Hands turned out.

We pushed aside
Fear, Confusion, Horror?
And got busy.

Vitamins, aspirin,
Fungal creme, balloons
You wanted it all. Twice.

We didn't have enough.
We didn't have answers.
We tried to smile.

Parasites, brokenness
Hunger, pain, infection
Disease, darkness...
