A Tiny Link

A  Tiny Link

A tiny link

This minute thread

Passing on through
The family tree
The DNA of insanity
A corrupted gene
So much heartache
This little gene brings
Love is shattered
And dreams recede
Hatred and violence
Now proceed

Used and abused
As a battering ram
Reviled and spat at
Cursed and goaded
Every violent day
When this gene
Comes out to play

Pleads help
Fall on deaf ears
As this foul little gene
Brings rivers of tears
Not a soul is listening
To the sorrowful plea
“Is they’re anyone out there”
“Who will show me mercy?”

Peter Wicks 2008
