We’ll Leave the Light On - Nov PAD day 26

We’ll Leave the Light On

name them family,
neighbors and friends; some
maybe strangers seeking refuge
from war torn neighborhoods,
bombed out hospital buildings,
but others call them uglier names,
threaten to toss them back
(like fish too small to keep).
Why share our bounty
with huddled yearning,
wretched refuse?
Why not just
the lamp?

PSC / 2016-11
