Raymond A. Foss Poems

In this Land of Plenty by Raymond A. Foss

In this land of plenty
no one should know hunger or fear
none should be without
the care they dearly need

We are our brothers’, our sisters’ keepers
their neighbors on this earth
we share the same human birth
our trials just the same

Our ways are made more gentle
our paths made more straight
when we each stop and help our neighbor
a good Samaritan’s hand offered
when no one is watching at all

All of us the same
no one better or worse
all called to follow
the master’s message
his command

To love one another
as we would choose to be loved
to help each other
to offer comfort to our neighbors
as we would hope they would do

All should be covered
no insurance withheld
all of our brothers, our sisters
worthy of healthcare
whenever they are in need
