borderlines

What would man do,
What would you,
If you were faced
With unspeakable things?

What would life bring,
What would we see
If faced with that which
Our father’s choices—
The results of their chosen evil—
Into our lives ring?

What would you do,
Man who
Has chosen your own
And said,
No God will rule you?

What will save you
When chance catches us two
Outside God’s rule?
