Privations


One losing his money, loses much!
Wealth is a part of power's clutch
Within the soul of driven men
Who cannot find themselves again.

One losing a good friend, loses more!
Loud protests unable to restore
The uniqueness of that unity,
Lost to amity's community.

One losing simple faith, loses all!
The proffer of hope, can't recall
Its raison d'Ítre, long dismissed...
Replacement, parvenu reason's tryst.
