This Humanity

If the barge stops coming
and we have all you need
will we share with our neighbors
or give in to greed?

If the barge stops coming
and the shelves are stripped bare
will we hoard a year’s surplus
or be kind and share?

If the barge stops coming
and the markets all close
will we let people starve
or help ease their woes?

If the barge stops coming
will we wake up and see
that we are all part
of this humanity?
