The Meeting

The Meeting - A poem created by Public Contributor, Russ Cowper, and Public & Community Involvement & Engagement Facilitator, Aneela McAvoy.


The panel log in

Warms words are exchanged

Then we begin


We've learnt how to Zoom

How to mute

Raise our hands

Pay tributes


We have an agenda

A running order

There is Joanna

The minutes recorder


Guest speakers attend

At times from above

They, brave the panel

And fall in love.


It’s easy to do

I’ve done it myself

All so unique

Their input top shelf


Passionate about health care

Their own views to give

Vocal experience

Of lives long lived.


Opinions opined

Insight aired

Valuable knowledge

All to be shared.
