Answerability

"The Life-Line" - Winslow Homer
“The Life-Line” – Winslow Homer

The wind, it sings a distant song
From far over the sea;
It’s asking, who is answerable
To help humanity?

Is it the rich? The scientists?
Is it the government?
Or is it all of us who share
This global circus tent?

I feel the answer in the wind
That blows o’er hill and lea;
Each name that’s called I will not know,
But one of them is me.
