We Who Prayed and Wept

by Wendell Berry

 

We who prayed and wept

for liberty from kings

and the yoke of liberty

accept the tyranny of things

we do not need.

In plentitude too free,

we have become adept

beneath the yoke of greed.

 

Those who will not learn

in plenty to keep their place

must learn it by their way

and the fields spurn their seed.

We have failed Thy grace.

Lord, I flinch and pray,

send Thy necessity.
