Holding in the Anger

They should gnaw the earth and claw the sky
Banshee screech with pointed teeth
They should flail the air with wretched arms
How can she leave him there?

How stand all so quiet?
On this discordant day
A boy ready for the ground lies near
How can she leave him there?

If he was mine I would stand for a lifetime
For the man he would become
Don't turn your back for a moment
How can she leave him there?

Hold your breath as mourners leave
Let not the earth swallow him
How can she leave him there
He belongs with her!

This is not finished nor perfect, but eventually it will sum up how I felt today...:-(
