The Stars are Not Wanted Now

The children are dead and so are we. Stop the clocks and put out the sun for they are not wanted anymore. We have failed in our basic charge and twenty souls tell us so. I can not listen anymore. I can not hear the inanities uttered by failed journalists. I can not listen to the politicians who say nothing. The fear pundits. The distanced victims glancing off their lips. For these were children and not victims. They were not the fallen and they were not armed. They knew nothing of rights or freedoms. They only knew the innocence of those who have not lived.

So I cannot join in. I cannot bring out about healing. There is none now. We have lost too much and for nothing. I cannot listen to the lies anymore. There is no joy . There is only rain and sorrow. We will go on but they will not and that is our charge. We have simply failed them.

So lets pack up the moon and dismantle the sun.  The stars are not wanted now: put out every one. Stop all the clocks, cut off the phone. Silence the pianos and  the muffled drum. Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood.

For nothing now can ever come to any good.
