Socio-Economic Doldrums

i awoke this morning and what did I see?
why, a mother bird fawning over chick in high tree

and below on the ground, what sound did I hear?
’twas the crystal crashing of shattered tears

falling like lead from the blue frozen lids
of a shaking & mottled, brow-beaten kid

who unlike in the feathered branches above
had no-one, just no-one to love
