Widows and Orphans

Woe to thee, O widows and fatherless,
thy horrid plight bellows dire refrains,
ye fade to dust, as memories enslaved,
still thine vile hunger’s quest remains,

Time is a passing nonexistent mystery
laying waste to thy companion bones,
tho' warfare and malady bare witness 
to thine marrow’ s disquieting moans,

The grave is thy souls true livelihood 
an unattainable death as yet deferred,
whilst hope is a never-ending dream 
as thine daily need goeth unprepared,

Tis a solemn yearning, this timeless 
future, yon happiness’ warmest smile, 
midst wearied cries of endless woes,
thy sufferings yet never-ending trial,

Ye spirits damned, wholly forgotten, 
whose voices ne'er speak nor shout,
‘Whence cometh mine splendid feast?’ 
to revive this wearied flesh without,

Truth’s slumberings are idle words 
a tried and practiced believable lie,
death’s paradigm of fainéant calls 
to thine ears a brief echoing lullaby, 

For compassion fatigue’s soulless 
uncaring heart, to thy faces aglow,
remembers not its altruistic smile
as thy lamenting hearts doth know,

O to thee, poor relicts and orphans
brotherly love is but a charitable din,
a deafening wish, hidden in dreams 
a faithful journey that’ll ne’er begin,
