Prayers of the poor by Siphiwe Hlongwane

Siphiwe Hlongwane | Nov 5th, 2020 | poetry | No Comments

Poem

Maybe God does not
Listen to prayers
With a stench
Of hunger

maybe he listens to
Prayers according
to the value of a tithe
sent with them

Or maybe the prayers
Of the poor are so
Loud they have
Rendered God
Deaf.
