A Summer Of Sorrow For All Of Us!

Why begrudge a few dollars
The government’s spent?
Why not, this time,
Refrain from comment?
Why not just stand
And listen, and hear
The sobs and the grief
From afar and near,
Not just for ‘illegals’
Who’ve been lost at sea.
Fire and flood could have taken
From you or from me.
That great leveller, Death,
Requires our respect.
Surely today, even you,
Can pause and reflect.

NormanK, 15/02/11 Hear, hear, Patricia! Beautifully covers much of what I have not been able to find words to express today. Thank you.

Feral Skeleton, 15/02/11 Patricia, That made me go all wibbly inside. In a good way.
