meat and cheese, PB&J – July 31


meat and cheese, PB

and J

menu of the morning

for some, of all day


how did we let it

get so far away

our hearts all hidden

what did they say


about lives gone

unwanted for work

on display. forgotten



and yet not just strays


God’s children grown

old, mistakes on display

without us, around us

we’ve so little to say.


except maybe sorry

we didn’t mean you

to fall, ‘twas an unthought

through outcome

of the greed of us all.
