The Sore

IMG_0978

 

There is a sore

Deep underneath the skin

Of our sweet planet

 

It has been there forever

Back before the dinosaurs,

One of Evolution’s many mistakes

 

Don’t blame it on God

 

Inflammatory markers

Offered warnings

But the sore festered and grew.

 

Weeping out its poison

An infectious despair

A cancer in our souls

 

We need to lance the wound

Add the antibiotic salve

Bandage the broken hearts

 

Don’t blame it on God

 

We are the physicians here

And we must learn

To heal ourselves.
