“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 devils 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

 -Evan Bolton
