Today and Tomorrow - Original Poem
Today and Tomorrow
The child that you starve today,
Will not grow your food tomorrow.
The man you put on the street today,
Will steal from you tomorrow.
The student that you won't teach today,
Will not mend your wounds tomorrow.
The profits that you made today,
Will create your loss tomorrow.
Your police who locked me up today,
Will lock you up tomorrow.
Your religion that preaches love today,
Will teach you hate tomorrow.
The master who you serve today,
Will have you killed tomorrow.
The life you had until today,
Was made of my tomorrow.
All I've learned, from all my days,
from all my joy and sorrow,
Is if I don't care for you today,
Then who will care for me tomorrow?
This poem was inspired by the many stories, signs and faces of the growing #OccupyWallStreet movement.
