Hail Fallen Corbett

I saw the shattered face of a man once
his world before me died in his eyes
the incumbent fires were so dim
forgotten in the eyes of pleasure

That mattered more to him than everything
no woman, no fights, arm wrestling 
nothing of such masculine victory
another pill for the fallen king

Arms, blood, muscle, hair, and skin
death to youth, death in silence
the pain crawled away and left him there
drowning in the eyes of his offspring

Grandfather, your bloody nose is red
i have seem your stories and love
faces and times are all his age has left
love is the only thing to coddle from an estranged man

Forget this the night when the world is cold
leave mother’s heart to the worms 
pray you this what God hath foreseen
Grandfather, your tufted sod will be remembered
