… some texts of Piri Thomas

Linked with our presentation of Piri Thomas – USA.

It’s got our beautiful children
living in all kinds of hell
hoping to survive and making it well
Swinging together in misty darkness
With all their love to share
Smiling a Christ-like forgiveness,
That only a ghetto cross can bear.
