“Won’t You Wake” – by Evan Bolton

* * *

What have you done with my commands

How have you used the labors of your hands

I said to spread the seed

Giving up all for those in need

Giving bread to the weak and poor

But all you have done is built a store

***

What have you done with my commands

With all the killing and war upon the sands

I said to clothe the homeless

Giving up all pride and selfishness

But all you do is sit and wait

Saying nothing as they knock on devil’s gate

***

What have you done with my commands

With the death and hunger in distant lands

I said to go

Even if you have nothing to show

But you expect gifts and pretty cake

Oh how I pray that you wake
