Angels Weep

Angels weep silently
For wicked thoughts
Uncensored words
Malicious acts

Angels weep aloud
For fearless acts of forbidden love
Lust in the bosoms of the weak
The slaughtering of man

Angels weep

Angels weep
They weep for pain
Weep for starvation
Weep for poverty

They weep for the unjustly acts of a barren world
For wars
And hatred
Impatience and rage

They weep for the still born bundle
Cradled in the arms of death...
A grip too tight
A grip of might

Angels weep for hidden love
reckless vulgar
Guilt and suffering

Angels weep for broken hearts
Poignant tears
Strung-out souls

Our angels
Weep for us
Man; the savages

Poem of the Day

poet Tu Fu

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
