Let Us Keep Watch

Let us keep watch over the children;

the orphans and the burn victims.

Let us keep watch over the maimed and the greedy,

and the diseased and hopeless too.

Let us keep watch over the animals,-

the trapped and the ones in the oceans.

Let us keep watch over the suicidal and the psychotic,

and the dispossessed too.

Let us keep watch over the rapists and the unfaithful,-

and even the believers.

Let us keep watch over the farmers and the unemployed,

and the blind and the kidnapped too.
