Needles and God Parents…

i’ll stand for your child, words thrown about, like cash from a dispenser,

the added protection, the statement that means everything, rely on me,

young child skulks upstairs, head down dream in disarray, been abandoned,

the hunger is his tummy real, afraid to open his mouth, hears about God Parents,

shrugs as he passes the picture, usual one sacred heart, it appeared to stare,

what have you done lately, he’s too young for excuses, afraid to say a word,

God Parents and duty, about as useful as an empty promise, so child asks,
