The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth?

A Poem by Melissa Kesead

Sobbing heard in the dark

only a spark of life is left

in the broken body


Garbage infested with rats

bums in holey hats seek warmth

from cardboard boxes


Young boys pushing what they can

on men who are rich or poor,

Girls raped in open lots

gotten for pocket change


Babies die from lack of food

while tons of crude oil coats

a nearby beach


The meek shall inherit the earth?
