I am at odds, writing this,

it is far too close to home

these sordid details

no one knew

these horrific acts

            no one saw

until now

far too close to home

now all know

what is worst in man


what is in ourselves


there, but for grace of God

go all


You Fool!

You Blind And Stupid Fool!

You had it in your very hand,


and you let it go.


would God’s mercy reach down to you

could you take it

would you dare
