Can You Walk A Mile In Their Shoes?

by Jim Rapp

Sixteen alleged felons
handcuffed to a cord
meekly trailing
through the door.

Sixteen “public servants”
petty criminals
building inspectors
bribe takers all.

Sixteen fearful families
sixteen anguished spouses
unknown children soon
may lose their houses.

Sixteen job openings
only those should apply who
can withstand the pressure
when your feet are in their shoes.
