Compassion is what the world needs?

Where does love go

When there is no solution?

Does it lift a bum up

When his cigaret doesn’t light

Or help him pay a parking fine?

And does a cop shake a black man’s hand

When his brother has been shot

And the victim hasn’t seen the might

of God’s swift justice?

And does it stretch its arms wide

when a lonely women cries

over a fist that has gone uncuffed

and a black eye patched with a frozen steak?

And does it take a heart to change the world

When a hug is what a child needs

And unity isn’t enough?

–Somebody

Arthur Pendalyn is a stay at home unemployed college graduate, with a BA in English literature (though he prefers the world "fiction"). In his past he moonlighted as a video store clerk, and even once won an argument with a customer who tried to persuade him that David Lynch's Dune was underrated masterpiece. To quote Arthur, "That movie is a piece of shit!"
