The Divining Rod

"Life is a whole bunch
Of containers that keep things
Where we want them until we

Want them somewhere else."
Not long ago near Salt Lake
A holocaust survivor
In his nineties was murdered

By burglars in his garage.
Just last week, a veteran
Of World War Two, Waddell Tate,
Aged ninety seven,

Was bludgeoned to death in bed.
Surviving horrors
Never saved us from horrors.
