I wrote this poem at the beginning of the isolation, when toilet paper was incredibly scarce, and the panic was at one of its highest peaks.
“Hoarding is a disorder that may be present on its own or as a symptom of another disorder. Those most often associated with hoarding are obsessive-compulsive personality disorder (OCPD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and depression.” (source: ADAA.org).
But those who don’t live with this disorder are also to be looked upon with sympathy, as we all try our best to get what we need to keep our families safe.
Ultimately, it comes down to sharing, caring and using only what you need; a philosophy that’s as much applicable to consumerism as it is to ecology.
