Return to Me

You who push the backs of the weak
     upon the ground,
Who kneel on the necks of the poor
     to keep them down,
Who stand on the heads of the needy
     to crush their crown,
Who to themselves toast glasses of wine
     and cheers all around.

Open your eyes!
Don't believe his lies.
Close your mouths!
Spread not untruths.
Open your ears!
He preys on fears.
Return to Me
     before it's too late.
The days to come
     can no longer wait.

Amos 3 and 4
