day 39

The priest of Midian had seven daughters.  They came to draw water, and filled the troughs to feed their father's flock.  But some shepherds came and drove them away.  Moses got up and came to their defense and watered their flock.  Exodus 2:16-17

we could sit
      by the side
      of society, watching
   and twittering about
   all those who are
         shoved aside,
         ridiculed,
         walled out,
      or
   we can stand up
   to the bullies,
welcoming everyone
to the well of
justice.
