The Country Was Laden

The Country Was Laden

The country was laden
With fruits and sugar and sunshine
And fish and rice and water
And veg and provision and timber
And corruption and shortages

So the body was ill
Unkempt and depressed
Self harming
Disbelieving
House divided
And unruly
No peace or settlement

The country is laden
With abundance
Overflowing
With good things

 

And cautiously, cautiously
Celebrating diversity
Markets bright
The shelves are full
The tarmac is smooth
Imaginative living
Is allowed
With beauty flourishing

So are the cracks
In the veneer
New skin growing
Healing scars
Or merely varnish
Painted over
And breaking out
In sores?

Please God
For healing
