INCONGRUITY
(5/24/13)


a good
person
dies

a bad
person
nearby
survives

even
flourishes

fate seems
a feeble
explanation

God's will
even more
so

we live
under a burden
of fear
concerning
our own
timely
or untimely
demises

we fear
the uncertainty

there are
those
who seek
an alternative
certainty

by belief

by faith

by will

whether
in a supreme
being

a cosmic
order

or
a comic
relief

let them
be

your only
certainty
seems to be
that they
are all
wrong

if that
is your comfort
make it work
for you

but please
keep it
to yourself

the more
that you
protest
the less
certain
you seem
