Alliterate Acts

Bold belief bedevils
Mad memes muster
Pied pipers peddle
Scores seek settle
Befuddled bigots bluster
Muddled missionaries meddle
Creeps, crusading, cluster


But for the grace,
Put down your
Fearful vanity
Rise up
Reach out
With Love
In every face
Your own Humanity


Life’s Hope captured
In the tiny stillness
Of immeasurable sorrow,
Be not in vain,
Else here, then, lies
Where all the World’s tomorrows die.


Aylan Kurdi, Galip, Rehan, may your Light shine in the darkness.
