Poem # 208 Ice

when someone steals your wallet and
punches you in the face to make his getaway
the only thing that will help heal that black eye is

when a husband has cheated on his wife;
or a wife has cheated on her husband
and left, taking everything they built together
only one thing will cure that heartache

when children have been abused by the people
who are supposed to be their protectors,
the only thing you can do to help
their poor battered souls; apply

when you come home to discover
that your house has been broken into
and all your most precious possessions
have been either stolen or destroyed;
there is only one thing that will take away the headache

when you believe that there is nothing in the world
that can be used to alleviate the suffering
caused by all the terrible wrongs
that man has done to his fellow man; try

when the world has knocked you to your knees
and you are feeling bruised and battered;
only one thing will take away the pain

just ice
