Them Over There Do Not Have Names


Them over there who don’t have names
Them over there who seem the same
Seem the same. Don’t have names
Them over there, the old and frail
Them over there, the young in jail
Them with cancer and no hair
Schizophrenics in despair. Them there

We over here can make a change
We can go there and learn their names
Make a change. Learn their names
Names for the old and for the frail
Names for the lost and those in jail
If we care – we must dare – learn their names ’til
There’s no “”them”” and there’s no “there.”
