William Blake

Hallowed Ground

Adam walked here

hand and hand with Eve

Such a garden is sacred.

quench your thirst, wine falls from the sky

as God's grace.

Must grain be fertilized only by blood?

Must we who take bread together

need sins forgiven when born?

We walk upright, we know the future

we know the past all too well

spending so much time there as we do.

Hush the loud debate

for where you stand has seen it all

and demands respect

as hallowed ground.

My thought for the day is that Republicans are intent on depriving us of our peace of mind.
That must not be tolerated.
