Savage God (1994r)

Poem by Patrick Wescott

Where are you,
O savage god?
You said that you'd guide me.
Promised you'd lead me to safety.
You swore I'd never walk alone.
Yet here I sit,
Solitude.
Have I caused offense?
Am I discarded as a toy?
Have I strayed too far,
and crossed the line?
For this I would give my life,
to find the road anew.
But where were you,
O savage god?
