I’m picketing injustice

with my son’s guitar.

Time to learn

how to play.

A rainy picket day

may as well bring new skills,

since there’s no other pay.

The house rests.

Five bodies drift on dreams.

One sits, enshrined in song,

strums softly

on strings:

a living lullaby.

Enjoy this original composition by Ben Kraft, who is one of my most memorable students.  The character of Ben isn’t named after him, but in Grace Awakening Power, Wesford Kraft is.  ;-P



Don’t I have talented kids?  You can check out more of Ben’s music on his Fandalism site.
