$50 Food Project- Emmaus
Jean-Marie Lee, Sketch, 2016

PLOGS BELOW (JML's Poetic Commentary)

Overlooked Needs

Causes of homelessness
Are of varying degrees
Locating a rooted problem

Pathologizing modern life
Humans' chronic needs
(including FOOD and SHELTER)

And the causes that be--

Tragedy--
Crime--
Abuse--
War--
Famine--
Economic hardship--
Natural disaster--
Death of breadwinner--
Distress--
Physical Illness--

Have you heard
A homeless person's
Story?--

To hear one--
To hear two--
You'll know

We are all
One step from
Heaven and Hell

Addiction is too easy-- guessing
Yet-- casting another aside
To arm your own pride

Laziness isn't sloth
If judgement comes
From your haste

Concluding one life
A waste of breath
Causing your own

Suffering to play
Victim to living folly
Then again--

We are all
One step from
Heaven and Hell

Thank you!!!
Emmaus for feeding
The Holy Family--

XOXO! JML
