cornucopia

what riches!
so many things we can buy,
dream about,
wish to receive,
worship

our cornucopia is overfull
(our landfill)
with iPads and Xboxes
programmable coffeemakers
refrigerators with TV screens
we can’t count them all

our shelter is overfull
with men and women
veterans, children
hungry, cold–
can we see them?

I would love to know your thoughts.
