National Poetry Month-Compassion Acrostic

Can we find a system that honors the needs of each and every 
One of us?  A system whereby
Mothers and fathers can take
Parental leave to nurture our most precious ones; where adult children can
Assist elderly parents through flexibility; where
Sickness and treatments can be tended to without a leave.
So also are there holidays that are not federally recognized, but are
Integral to the spiritual wellbeing of workers;
Others need time for vet appointments.  Employees are human, with
Needs that go beyond their service to the organization.

  2. Yes! Also, can we get medical care that doesn’t put us in terrible debt?
