“Why, O Lord, do you stand far off?
Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble?
In arrogance the wicked persecute the poor —
Let them be caught in their own schemes.” ~ Psalm 10:1-2
Where’s your father
when you need him Mama’d say
when all the lights suddenly went out
and we didn’t have any new fuses
Go find your brother
My brother’d put tin`
foil behind the burnt out fuse
Hallelujah she’d shout under the lights
as if it had been some miracle
saved us from the pit
But it was my father
taught my brother the old trick
As a last resort you can try the tin`foil
But be careful! You might just
set the place on fire
Where is your Father
the nice woman asked me when
they pulled a mother two dead children
from an ice`skidded car off a tree
She widow’d twice!
What do you say
you who believe in the miraculous
when one that’s called for doesn’t come
What do you say when God is silent
Where are you God!
