Stitched into my brain
Is the sordid patchwork
Of sights seen, outlined in sackcloth;
Homeless children dousing their legs
Let love eradicate hate
(That always seeds and seals our fate)
And never to discriminate
No, never to recriminate!
Hosannas to protestors of the plight of the masses,
To researchers who try to salve our suffering.
To keepers of the peace,
To resisters of hate and wrongful actions,
