The Children, the Aged, the Disabled

Those who count on us
the children, the aged, the disabled
unable to speak for themselves
those not sitting at the table

We are their guardians
the stewards of their lives
we should be better than this
in this nation of such riches

Parens patriae, all of us caring
the covenant we owe them
to provide for their needs
never to be left behind

None of the cuts to come
should fall on the helpless
those unable to care for themselves
Those needing the State for protection

March 11, 2011
calling on the NH Legislature
and the Governor
to spare those without a voice
those who need us
from the severe budget cuts
that are currently planned
in HB1 and HB2, etc.
