the little kids
      who wake up
      every morning hungry,
   while we attend
   another prayer breakfast
      where food will
      be thrown away;
the families
      who must sit in
      urgent care waiting
      for hours,
   while we can see
   our doctor the
   same day we call;
the person who
      lives out of
      a shopping cart,
   while we rush
   to the store to
   get items we don’t
   need (but there is
     2” of snow forecast!);
do they ever
wonder about folks
who talk so much
about dreams, but
   never act?
