Prayer For An Offended World (a love poem)

Prayer For An Offended World

where no one is left who
in truth can say, “How could you?”
with authority, without a trace of irony.
Return to us our shock and shame.
Relieve us of our need to blame.
Receive our sacrifice of self.
Let us begin again.
Amen.
