I can not grasp her out stretched hand

I can not ignore her pleas for mercy

I can not feed her hungry mouth

I can not turn from her desperate gaze


She is news worthy

caught on the screen

She is the filth

reflecting my clean

We share a moment

tears trail our cheek

She is in spotlight

catch of the week

As her story closed

she faded to black

I rose from my sofa

calling her back


We can offer support

We can answer her call

We can place food on her tongue

We can see, she is worth our trouble
