day 225

O that today you would
         listen to his voice!  Psalm 95:7b

over the bile
of the radio bullies,
      may we hear hope;
turning down the rhetoric
of bellicose politicians,
      may we hear peace;
refusing to listen
to anger's enticing ads,
      may we hear love,
and then speak
with our lives.
