Terence G. Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)


Beloved Our Suffering Humanity


now we can toast
on bollinger purchased
to Greg Uhan's words;

007 will not
shot us lovers
of peace

the poor
the broken
hearted down;

rather we shall step build
rainbow bridge colourful
beautiful autumn bonfires

of our words
sing our love
to a chill;

cold hungry
world neglected
turn bombs

grenades weapons
of war into bread
fish feasts with wine

then invite
all suffering people
from all nations;

regardless of age
race religion gender
encoded sexuality

occupation
to sit sip sup
at our table

our celebration
a feast to superior
hearts love empathy

of supposedly
common humanity
which gives

all from their livelihood
not a few token coins
from profit as disguised

tax rebate
greed calculation
which insults

the souls
of beloved our
suffering humanity...
