Don't Worry
We are your Cleaners by kahpot
Essential Workers contest entry
Artwork by supergold at

I rise unseen from bended knee
unknown I work to set you free
behind a mask and gloved attire
I clean this room you now desire

a throne for you, ceiling to floor
no fear of germs behind this door
I fought them well, the best I could
I knew the cost, and for you I stood

I cleaned the way for all inbound
unseen, untouched, devoid of sound
my works now done so now it's time
for someone else in darkness shine

I'm resting now, in quarantined space
along with many who joined this race
to cross this line, not first or last
but to see it fade into the past


Author Notes
Thank you supergold for the artwork
This virus has taken it's toll on many cleaners I know
especially those who work in shopping malls as I now do
