Would you Help me? (a poem)

Would you help me if I was in trouble?

Would you be tender?

Would you be like the good Samaritan in the bible?

Would you wipe the drool off my bruised mouth?

Would you carry me on the battlefield?

Would you feed me?

Would you listen to me talk of how I’ve wasted my life?

Would you give me a cigarette?

Would you tell me to quit smoking?

Would you chastise me?

Would you condemn me?

Would you crucify me?

Would you raise my child?

Would you fight with me for peace on earth?

Would you kill for me?

Would you kill me?

Would you help me if I was in trouble?
