AMERICA

(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.
