Come…. tell us.
Speak to us.
Whisper words that will give us hope.
We long for encouragement –
and housing and food and education and shoes and medicine and glasses and jobs….
Who will intone for all the poor?
Where are the incorruptible ones?
Who will carry the cross?
Who will cross that battered wooden door?
Where is man’s best?
Who will live among
And stand with the oppressed?
