Though the Rich

Though the rich own
As long as the poor
Eat rice off the floor
And have not a door
God will not condone
The rich keeping store
While others are sleeping on stone

Though the rich grow
As long as there are
People who starve
While begging on tar
God throws below
The rich keeping far
More than they need that they stow

God bless,
Joshua Fahey

Uncanny Haiku

Orange lanterns
Gaze eerily down the street
Waiting for children

God bless,

Alien Riddle

This black unearthly earth
Has given eerie birth
Neath horseless carriage
To the uncanny marriage
Of banality and tarred mirth

God bless,
Joshua Fahey

A woman who gives her last two pennies
Has given more than I
Though I have given tens and twenties
I keep some on the sly

God bless,

Scalding Thorn

Assaulted or seared with scalding thorn
My stubborn heart with stone adorned
Bashed by bricks by day, by night
My mind goes soft with stubborn might
How can I call on the Lord, God of all
If even I by my stubbornness am appalled

God bless,
Joshua Fahey

Whose likeness is imprinted?
On your soul engraved?
Render unto Caeser's what is his
And to God your soul that's saved

God bless,
Joshua Fahey
