Peter Burton, Queensland Regional Meeting

We are not helpless, we are human (Stephen Stills)

chains of neighbours bucketed infernos
chains of arms held fast in flood
chains of elders outstared fashion
chains of love locked in by blood
chains of truth tapped bulwarks of might
chains of peace tripped minefields of greed
chains of smugglers shipped victims of hate
chains of Quakers trained slaves to be freed
chains of humanity snapped shackles of fate
chains of parables raised voices to reason

chains of Nature nurture and weather
chains of relentless tiny acts, arouse the Spirit
to kindle the Lamb in the darkest heart
