\"\"

Father said prayer worked
And if you practised
Long enough the thing
Fell in place with the

Unseen God working
Behind the scenes and
Ample grace but young
Shoretaker tried hard

Until the black space
About his head and
Heart bled and his god
Died and like Nietzsche

Said was dead but still
He tried with hands pressed
Tight together and
Eyes closed shutting out

Light but allowing
In images of
The dancing girls and
The dark fucks of night

And the taunting and
Nagging human all
Too human fat assed
Wide waisted wife of

His miserable life
But still he tried and
Persisted with the
Attempted praying

The over the top
Words the odd way of
Saying and even
Tried getting on the

Knees until they ached
And the bones creaked while
Waiting for just a
Sign and soft whispered

Message and sat back
On his heels numbing
His bony ass and
Opening an eye

Waiting to hear an
Angel’s voice to see
A star but heard and
Saw none and gave up

On his father’s faith
In prayer believing
No unseen god was
Listening out there.
