Owl Poetry & Prose

Covid 19 – Epiphany in Lent

The days are endless and the nights are long

The daily adage is a melancholy song

Of imprisoned souls and shackled minds

Too often lost in the daily grind


Yet starkly drawn out like a dagger to the rib

Is something that will destroy you, aged or in the crib

A primitive life form of mocking inconsequence

Reminding humanity of their ultimate irrelevance


In a world of human destruction in a world of man made greed

Where desire seduces minds with much more than they need

A crowned intruder is riding through the night

As men prepare to battle in an unconventional fight


Yet who do we turn to and who can we blame?

When one looks in the mirror, who can we name? Who can we shame?

The verdict lies on those of us who into this world came

With a misguided notion that God made us & him, the same


So carry on wayward daughters and sons, fruits of this Earth of Eden’s curse

Tis Darwin who will have the last laugh as we roll out our own hearse

A lesson we failed to learn and live by as we grasp onto tendrils of faith gone by

That of the mother on who we depend, is this our Earth and she will live beyond our end.
