cry out!

“‘Many sternly ordered him to be quiet, but he cried out even more loudly, ‘Son of David, have mercy on me!’”  Mark 10:48

while we keep telling
the vulnerable
the oppressed
the forgotten
to shush and deal
with their lot, you
are whispering to them,
‘keep ratcheting up the noise,
until they pay attention;
if they won’t listen to me,
hopefully they will to you.’
