(18 January 2008 by Carl A. Patton)
This day I appealed to humanity
one more time. There I looked upon
bleak walls, bulletin boards that
offered help with your high
school diploma and GED.
The people came to this place searching
for help seen in benevolent and charitable services.
Meanwhile the fare was not always
well. They dispensed food for,
Life as the dispossessed, the
lazy, the unemployed the cripple
the forsaken and the
destitute came and went.
I wondered about the education
of those that came as skills
somehow had something to
do with hunger.
What else caused hunger?
The food was consumed however
the Word never ceased to exist on
a silver and golden platter as the
righteous fed on the fatted calf.
