let us gather around this table

The word on the street is there’s more bad news coming.
The word on the street is that the people are gonna be marching.
The word on the street is that we’re done with all of the hate and the trolling.
But before we put on our shoes and before we take up our signs
Let us gather around this table and pass around the plates.
Let us gather together and share a cup of communion and unity.
Here is food: the harvest of the earth and of our brows,
And here is wine: the fruit of the vines, dark in its bottle.
Here we are, gathered, and here we pray for strength and grace.
Friends and family, no matter where they are, near and far and all points in between,
Here we are, gathered, and here let us say thanks,
For we are all still together no matter where we each happen to be
And we will give each other the strength and the grace that we need
And we will rise, and fight the good fight — but first, let’s all say thanks.
