No Such Thing as Safe


last night the power went out

I sat in my babys room, shaking

they have robbed from me my peace

that my tomorrow will dawn

and that those under my care

will remain protected

for I am helpless against this evil

I have no defence to raise against

a terror which sudden and violent strikes


the arm of an evil greater than man

requires the strength of a Greater Good


and in my fear, upon this chair

I turned my face to God
