day 87

When the men had come to him, they said, "John the Baptist has sent us to you to ask, 'Are you the one who is to come, or are we to wait for another?'"  Luke 7:20

while we drum
      our fingers on
      our faded dreams
waiting for the
one who will restore
   our might
   our greatness
   our wealth
   our membership
            you
are rescuing the
       immigrants,
   giving medicine
       to the sick,
   picking up those
      who have stumbled,
   opening the eyes
      of the unwilling,

and waiting

for us to stop asking
and start doing.
