Pigeons

 

it is not the weak
          and feeble who
                     should be judged
                      as pigeons in the
             street rats fending
         for themselves
          penitently overtaking
every town square
          it is you the
                 privileged
                     a life of choice
             the first in life
        shall be the last
   in heaven
                you must have grace
                    for those pigeons
               are fed
on the white throne
           where lonely people live
                 the centre of the community
                 let them be
be the voice
         of justice
               let them be
