Ah my Fra

Stephen Chinnock

26 May 2020

I want to kneel
on my knees
with you
to contemplate
our fate right now
in your cold austere cell

What sense
can we make
of our current dilemmas
brought on by neglect
of the world
given to us
by providence

I want to sit with you
for a while in silence
meditation at least
trying to understand
what we have
given up

At the end of the day
greed and clutching
for power
won’t give us
a functional world
Needed right now!
