VEIL OF TEARS
by Kathleen Godwin
kathleen@raccoonrescue.com

I TRY TO CALM THE WILD ONESí FEARS
THE DARK AND QUIET END DOES NEAR

THROUGH A VEIL OF SADDENED TEARS
AT BLANK AND TINY EYES I PEER

THEY STARVE AND SUFFER INSECT STINGS
AND ALL THAT BEING ORPHANED BRINGS

WHILE MOTHER LIES WITH BONES EXPOSED
AS WE CUT THE TREE AND PAVE THE ROAD

DOES THIS MAKE YOU REALLY PROUD
A HUMAN FAR ABOVE THE CROWD

DO YOU WISH YOUR BABES TO SEE
THAT THIS IS NOW THEIR LEGACY
