This work has reached the exceptional level
we can start by listening

No time like the present

by Jesse James Doty

When times are hard
people help each other
or bicker amongst themselves

When times get harder
people find someone else to blame
for all their misfortune

When times get harder still
angry people create
random acts of violence

When times are hardest
people rise together to create change
within and without the system

They can pull together as a team
when people mean what they say
and say what they mean



I am not taking sides.
We need to start a conversation,
and then listen.
Thank you for reading.
