Brooks Haxton - I Want to Pray

         In the hidden part thou shalt make me to know
            wisdom.    Psalm 51

That young man
firing his Kalashnikov
into the playground
has been made to know
the hidden part.

Me, I want to pray.
Iím on my knees.
But all I am is screaming
I donít know what for.  Maybe
the best God can do is pay no mind.
