What Have You Done?

By Kaimlet on 18-08-2017

“I was hungry, and you formed a humanities club, and discussed my hunger.

I was imprisoned, and you crept of quietly to your chapel in the cellar and prayed for my release.

I was naked, and in your mind you debated the morality of my appearance.

I was sick, and you knelt and thanked God for your good health.

I was homeless, and you preached to me the spiritual shelter of the love of God.

I was lonely, and you left me alone to pray for me.

You seem so holy, so close to God:

But I am still very hungry, and lonely and cold.

So where have your prayers gone? What have they done?

What does it profit a man to go through his book of prayers, when the rest of the world is crying for help.
