Where are the Angels?

Where are the Angels?
By Lea Drake

In church, they tell us
Tales of Angels.

How they love us.
How they help us.
How they guide us.

In circle, they tell us
Tales of Angels.

How they love us.
How they help us.
How they guide us.

Yet . . .
Famine in our own country
And all over the world.
Pain. Suffering.
Murder. Child abuse.

Instead of praying
To Gods
We pray
To Dollars.

Where are the angels?



Lea Drake’s work appeared in several small poetry journals. She is working on a book of poems.
