The Saddest Picture
“The saddest picture in the world today”,
Boasted the New York Times.
The photo was highly reminiscent of,
Most natural and human crimes.
I remember well the Blue Jay bite,
Severing the Guinea chick’s head.
The neighbor’s dog in the geese and hens,
Decorating the farm’s lawn with the dead.
Today a black crow perched nearby,
Blood dripping red death from the beak,
There is no peace in nature I know,
Yet still I search and endlessly seek…
The knowledge somewhere peace exists.
Love lasts now and forever after…
I no longer like to hear the gull’s,
The clocks, and the reaper’s laughter.
