Around the table: A Thanksgiving Poem

Around the table

We will gather

 

Around the table

We will give thanks

 

Around the table

We will eat

 

Around the table

We will discuss

………………………..

Around the table

All are not welcome

 

Around the table

We will argue

 

Around the table

Families will take sides

 

Around the table

Myths and stereotypes abound

……………………………………………

Around the Table

All are welcome

 

Around the Table

All are invited

 

Around the Table

Stories, cultures, experiences are valued

 

Around the Table

We indict ourselves, not others

 

Around the Table

We are all forgiven, accepted, loved

 

Around the Table

Justice over oligarchy

 

Around the Table

We are called to work together

 

Around the Table

We are all equal
