day 43

Then he asked, "Why, what evil has he done?"  But they shouted all the more, "Let him be crucified!"  Matthew 27:23

we take great umbrage
   at the seasick little girl
         in a refugee boat;
      the woman in front
         of us using food stamps;
      the family struggling
         to learn the language
         of their new home, but
remain silent whenever
   injustice roars,
      lies prowl our streets,
   hate promotes a seminar,
      anger offers a free meal to all.

Lord, have mercy.
