I Was Hungry and You Blamed it on the Communists

I was hungry and

you blamed it on the communists

I was hungry and you

circled the moon

I was hungry and you

told me to wait

I was hungry and you

set up a commission

I was hungry and you said

“So were my ancestors”

I was hungry and you said

we don’t hire over 35

I was hungry and you said

God helps those…

I was hungry and you told me

I shouldn’t be

I was hungry and you told me

machines do that work now

I was hungry and you

had napalm bills to pay

I was hungry and you said

the poor are always with us.

Lord,

when did we see you hungry?

Matthew 25:37
