WHY, AND YET AGAIN WHY!

Okay, Okay, picture this, you are working
People are talking and mentioning this mythical
Bloke saying, he is good, he is kind, he knows what
He is doing and you, tending a dying child look askance
And wonder, can they not see before their very eyes, that
This mythical figure they adore doesn’t give a damn.

A child has just died in my arms, am I supposed to thank
This mythical figure they all exhort when in pain. All I can
See is another innocent gone from this world.
My despair is of hopelessness.
So many months I looked after many such as he or she..

Yet this mythical figure
These people adore, I abhor.
How can a benevolent guy let a child die.

Now I have an eejit imploring me,
Telling me, God knows what he is doing.
Okay so do I and if that mythical figure
was about. A good kick up the arse
Is where I would start.

Do not talk to me about your mythical God.
Hold a dying child in your arms
Then implore his pity.
You’ll see he doesn’t give a damn.
