GOD’S WORLD

I SOMETIMES WONDER

DO WE PRACTICE RELIGION

BECAUSE WE BELIEVE

OR BECAUSE

IT MAKES US RESPECTABLE

WE BELIEVE WITH RELIGIOUS FERVOR

THAT WE SHOULDN’T HELP THE HOMELESS

ESPECIALLY THOSE SCARRED BY WAR

WHICH WAR

WE CHEERED THEM WHEN THEY WENT

OR HELP SINGLE PARENTS

BY DIVORCE

WAR

DEATH

THEY’RE NOT WORTHY

BECAUSE THEY ARE NEEDY

TAX THE POOR

EXCUSE THE WEALTHY

MAKE RETIREMENT A HORROR

NOT A PEACEFUL SUNSET

I AM REMINDED

OF AN INCIDENT

WHICH HAPPENED IN NEWFOUNDLAND

MY MOTHER’S BIRTHPLACE

THE FISHING WAS BAD

THE OWNERS OF THE FISHING FLEET

PETITIONED THE AUTHORITIES

TO CUT THE WORKERS WAGES

THEIR REPLY WAS NO

DO YOU INCREASE THEIR WAGES

IN GOOD TIMES

OR CUT YOUR OWN WAGES

WITH THE WORKERS

ECHOES OF MODERN TIMES

WORKERS ASKED TO CUT WAGES

CEOS MAKE MILLIONS

IF WE PROTEST

WE’RE TOLD IT’S SOME KIND OF ISM

SOME KIND OF CLASS WARFARE

I DON’T THINK A HUNGRY MAN CARES

GOD CALLS HIMSELF

FATHER OF THE POOR

HE RECOGNIZES OUR TENDENCY

TO IMPOVERISH ALL BUT US

HE RECOGNIZES THIS TENDENCY OF OURS

WHEN HE SAYS

THE POOR ARE ALWAYS WITH YOU

IS SUCH A WORLD GOD’S PLAN
