Bookstore Poem #64. Such is the calling

At Third Place Books, Lake Forest Park. A response to a tweet by the current Speaker of the House:


For generations
voices have been calling

For freedom
voices have been calling

For equality
voices have been calling

For inclusion
voices have been calling

For justice
voices have been calling

For respect
voices have been calling

For remembrance
voices have been calling

For reparations
voices have been calling

For peace
voices have been calling

For love
voices have been calling

Such is the calling
you have steadfastly refused to answer
