meat and cheese, PB&J – July 31

7.31.2014

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

abandoned

 

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.
