No Meaning To It
by Thomas Harris
Age Group: Adult
"And you call yourself a Pagan", she said
Across the room of people gathered
When the story of a possum killed
Reverbated in her soul, reverbated to rising,
Rising within her for the senselessness of it.
And he, shrugging, said it just happened,
No meaning to it.
And he, taking another aside,
Tells of an abuse once made
Behind a concrete wall, when young
And of persons who heard unacting
Made the world of none effect.
And of karma he now realising
Was not all of his doing...
No meaning to it.
And bad advice was given,
Making bad moves likely,
And likely they came to fruition,
And coming to fruition, they planted
And having planted, they sprouted,
Surely, no meaning to it.
And the world becomes of action shared
And no sense is made of it all
And people are walking away
And tears are shed around
And no one understands, no one is sure,
And we close eyes
No meaning to it...
