That Summer

That year in NY State Summer Camp

There were some more man

Than I was

Taller in the wheelchair than I wis standing.


Vietnam had taken a spine, a leg;

Even the ridding of human waste

Given out to the European counsellor.


Still the broken spleens, backs and lives continue

War and want around the world.


Back in that precious summer

Learning human dignity is earned

Despite the despots, Gods and demons

Who trample those with weapons or not.
