WEEPING MULTITUDES

Beaten and bruised.  Broken bodies.
Mangled by starvation.  Lack of vitality.
Trapped or tripped.  Tricked with no choice.
Human slaves.  Left to rot in misery.
 
O, what a Eucharist!
 
Every tree.  Shapes like a cross.
One thing is free.  Torture and mis-trust.
Heroes and villains. Keep pushin' and pullin'
Caught in the middle.  Have no voice but to saddle.
 
O, what a Eucharist!
 
Strewn bodies.  The Body and the Blood:
Broken for you.  And shed for you.
Death is indeed a resurrection for us.
In dying we liberate the terror of living.
 
O, what a Eucharist!
 
[Dedicated to Tamil Civilians in Sri Lanka]
