Tell Goliath to invest in
Swimming lessons,
He’ll need that ability.

He has stashes of
armor and military weapons,
That is not security.

When storms are raging
and extinction threatens,
The only strength is community.

Pebbles fly
From nature’s sling,
Stand down and nurse her fragility.

I am writing 30 Poems in November to support the Center for New Americans which provides English language classes, education support and legal services assistance for immigrants in Western Massachusetts. Please see my campaign page to support this cause. Thank you, Iz.
