Words that rhyme with “pandemic”

An epic pandemic for too many days

Petty polemics that fill me with pain

Oppression, systemic, from greed and hate

Recession, an epidemic of bills to pay

Schools closed, academics are slipping away

Health and wealth gaps, endemic, in political power plays

Protests, alchemic, transforming our ways

We know, it’s epistemic, got to vote for change

The Wonder of It All

My dad, Tom Sandin, was a faculty advisor and professor to the astronaut Ron McNair. My dad was interviewed about Ron McNair in a recent article, called “The Wonder of It All”. I just read the article and realized I had written some lyrics in a song called “Small Wonders”, about seeing the Earth from space, with the phrase “the wonder of it all”…

“And from far away
Even the Earth looks small
There’s a quiet beauty
And the wonder of it all
Is how it looks so calm”

Given what the entire world is going through right now, I love the image of looking at the Earth from space and imagining that we are all in this together and we will get through this!

Here’s the link to the incredible article. So proud of my father and impressed with Ron McNair!
