 I know not Why  

I  Know not why the tiny sparrow must fall
           Nor why the might storms must call
I know not why that sometimes the end
comes before the beginning
I know not why man kills his own kin
 or takes his life in the end
 I know not why young children
must starve and die
       I know not why war kills peace
 I know not how many stars are in the sky
      I know not the wisdom of Solomon
 For if I did, I’d know the answer to
     these riddles so sadly inscribed here in tears
