Waters Can Look So Still

The Hague looks so still.
“Kids are safe in school”
“Kids are safe in school”
Did a Dad say that in Newtown?
Did a Dad say that in Peshawar?
And what if he did,
Do the words and wishes of fathers
Matter?

When tears fill God’s well
They burn like hell
Dripping on our barren Soul
Stripped of beauty by insanity
Of one sort or another:
Video games
Fanaticism
Party lines.

Blame ourselves
For failing Love

The one need
The only need
That really matters.
