Another and another

           ridiculous tragedy.
More innocent lives.

Each time,
I find I watch less coverage,
              though, I'd rather not admit that.
                 It's clockwork, now and
seems my hands
                 are, lately, in
                          the air.
                                  I'm wanting to believe in
the there's-more-good theory,
but cynicism shakes
                           his head
                                   and says, ha,

I failed then
give a satisfactory answer,
           so wonder if he's
          still wondering
                 or just laying down a trump card.
             isn't Heaven, I tell him.
We need to need a God.  Free will, I say.


That's his final answer.
