Oh Cruel Faith - Poem by Brian James Caffrey

Oh cruel faith, why me?
Why give me a cardboard box and them a house?
Why give me tattered clothes and them the latest fashions?
Why give me loneliness and them love?

Why give me compassion for others and them ignorance?
Why give them false friends and me the warm feeling of human generosity?
Why them materialistic slavery and me a love of all things naturally beautiful?
Oh cruel faith, why them?
