What ails thee?



The blue light from the television screen underscores care packages and pamphlets on chinooks
The plastic wrap comes off and the goodies are a welcome relief, the paper flies away
The business of living must go on past these few weeks, however, and pain and hunger return
What now, dear benefactor, now that the band aid's soiled and the pain killer's worn off?
Gifts of blankets and t-shirts must always be accompanied by shipments of seed, sod, tractors and such
