Antithesis

Antithesis

A Poem by Samuel Ferris

The young boy
was taken and tossed
into the trash of the alley.

The mother sank to her knees
at the news of her new found
uselessness.

The god said:
let there be evil.

The murderer of the young child
cursed the god and condemned 
his own design through the bars
of his new home.

The rat and the roach
gorged on the crumbs
left by evil; the devil
provides for the crafty,

And the god sits back and praises
his own design.
