Thoughts on elder abuse

It’s more than a slap of the cheek

And a bruise on display

It’s more than a tear on a wrinkled cheek

Or a failure to pay

It’s a fearful look in a watery eye

A downturned mouth

And a heartfelt sigh

Pity those who treat their loved ones

With disrespect

We pray they never experience abuse and neglect
