PARABLE OF THE BLIND

1
Men had shaved heads.
One war was always ending,
another always beginning.
Ambulances were everywhere.

2
All over the country,
people had lost each other.
Others got suddenly old.
Small groups huddled
around baby cribs, sobbing.

3
A government clerk was sitting in a café
drinking his third beer when an angel
with a grave face walked in.
Everyone knew what that meant.
