day 119

Have they no knowledge,
         those evildoers,
   who eat up my people as
         they eat bread,
   and do not call upon God?  Psalm 53:4

using bread with grains
harvested by farmers
      struggling to stretch
      their budgets;
   piling on veggies
      picked by
      weary-backed
            migrants;
   adding a few meat
   slices produced
      by low-paid
      meat-processors
      and truck drivers, we
offer a quick
               grace
as we bite
into the lives
   of those we
   rarely notice.
