Ring Them Bells

Image is not my own work. It is a painting by Peter Maxx.

In my head I can hear a gospel choir singing this.

Ring them bells for justice
so the blind truly see
Every different color
of layered equality
Ring them bells for justice
Ring them bells for equality
Ring them loud
Ring them proud
Ring them now

Ring them bells for the hungry
as we reach for thirds
The poor are human beings
who are begging for firsts
Ring them bells for the hungry
Ring them bells for the poor
Ring them loud
Ring them proud
Ring them now

Ring them bells for the hurt
wherever they stay
Help the afraid to real healing
It must start today
Ring them bells for the hurt
Ring them bells for the afraid
Ring them loud
Ring them proud
Ring them now

Ring them bells in the early morning
Ring them bells in afternoon
Ring them bells every evening
Why aren’t you ringing them now
Ring them bells for one people
Ring them bells for one world
Ring them loud
Ring them proud
Ring them now

Ring them bells for action
it’s more than hashtags
More than wearing colored ribbons
in a one person stag
Ring them bells for action
Ring them bells for truth
Ring them loud
Ring them proud
Ring them now

Ring them bells for freedom
all across this land
Let peace be our calling
not the strength of a hand
Ring them bells for freedom
Ring them bells for peace
Ring them loud
Ring them proud
Ring them now
