Come to the Table by Jerry Schur


Come all you citizens,

Peace is no fable.

Come to the table


Noble participants,

Cast off your label.

Engage at the table.


Welcome, peace seekers.

Let emotions be stable

Here at our table.


 Be reasonable, people.

Talk, you are able.

Listen at the table.


Shouters desist,                                               

In rags or in sable.                                                           

Stop pounding the table.           


 Come back, all. Come back.                                               

You’ve fled from the table.

It stands now alone, our wonderful table.
