Before The Jump…(Quest Post)


For the breadwinner

Still roaming the streets
Years after graduation
A guardian’s broken heart
The lover beat black and blue
The son stabbed to death
By the woman he married
A child abandoned in a pit
For the overwhelmed electorate
Whose mandate is stolen
The priest butchered on the alter
The herders whose cattle are rustled
The child left to die of hunger
All the oppressed of the earth
The weeping…
Before the jump.
