For Berrigan

BerriganBy Ric Hudgens

When pundit choirs
sing for blood
when hatred fills
our morning hymns
when court chaplains
intone murder
when tithing
funds annihilation
the prophet
is the one
the prophet
is the one
the prophet
is the one
who interferes.
Glory to God.
Requiescat in pace.

Daniel Joseph Berrigan, S.J. (May 9, 1921 – April 30, 2016)
