“For you have been a refuge to
          the poor,
    a refuge to the needy in their
    a shelter from the rainstorm
          and a shade from the heat.” Isaiah 25;4

we close up our
      umbrellas, rather
   than share them;
we slam the door
   in the faces
   of the weary;
we stomp around
   leaving large carbonprints;
we close our blinds
      so we dare not see
   kids playing
   in misery’s streets;

Lord, in your mercy . . .
