Climbing the Stairs

They gather every week
some of our neighbors
to eat at our table;
but how many more
would come to our door
if they didn’t have to face
climbing the stairs

Money in the bank
sitting in our investments; yet
those we cannot reach
who never come to the table
too much to handle
with bodies old, feeble,
no room for them
those unable to climb the stairs
