MAN OF SIGHS

MAN OF SIGHS

Gazing sorrowfully upon mans folly
The man of sighs dies, knowing
Mans cruelty to man shall never cease
It will leave him despairing
Throughout the eons of time

If 9 /11 was our day of tears his was Golgotha
Crucified by man, held erect by nails, he forgave
The mourning crowd, even the centurion who
Drove the spear into his side, though did we at that moment
Create this world of sighs,
Places such as, Flanders field,
Auschwitz, Vietnam, Palestine, Rwanda,

 The man of sighs lived through each enormity
In his forgiveness great is his pity, knowing
That his creation commits such dastardly acts
Again, and again creating this,
Our singular world of sighs
