The Poetry of Richard Schletty
Few hours of repose
and a barge load of woes,
God's trawling the oceans
for wayward emotions.

All kinds of perceptions.
Distinct dispositions.
Unique dreams and sighs.
Diverse wails and cries.

This deity's angling.
His love's disentangling
the human condition,
dark mare of perdition.

His oars keep on churning
through wavelets of yearning.
Hope wrapped 'round despair,
Does God really care?
