Another Mother Dies

 

For each child another mother dies.

Memory being what was for each.

Grief does not dispel the lies.

But now in death beyond the reach.

Image does return and belies.

The shame that was within the breach,

Of that which did not reach to spires,

But was instead required to preach

Sherman does but retires

And Carol there to teach

Justin, The child, looking for the ties.
