A Prayer to Rescind

 

A grieving lonely sod

Whispers silently in the wind

Heard only by the angels

A prayer to rescind

Abandoned house

 Sits on a hill 

built long ago 

Are there memories that dwellith still?

 Modest furniture 

Much in disrepair 

A family gone away 

Leaves no laughter there 

The last owner spent his money 

Upgrades to a sorrowful house

Neither spending time with his children 

Neither spending time with his spouse 

This home was his castle 

Attributing higher value to it then his kin

A bewitchment of the Devil?

A bewitchment from narcissistic whim?

The wares of our deception 

Account for much of the blame 

Whom will take any account?

Whom will take any shame?

Beseech the broken-hearted

Only the down-trodden know

This cumbersome attachment

A broken family can bestow
