What about them

What about them
What about the faces
on the evening news
What do I say to them
while I’m putting on my shoes
What about him
What about the man
with the sign on the street
that says he’s homeless and hungry
what do I say to him
as I’m sitting down to eat
What about her
what about the woman
who’s husband beats her black and blue
what do I say to her
while I’m making love to you
What about the children
hiding from the bombs
falling on Afganistan and Iraq
what do I say to then
while I’m thinking of payback
What about him
what about the man
staring back from my mirror at days end
what do I say to him when he asks
what about them

What about them
