Wasted Son

What use now his Mothers child bearing?

what use now his birth?

what use now his old age expected time on earth?

what use now his childhood, his youthful years?

what use now his Mothers goodbye tears?

what use now his naive bravado?

what use now his willingness to go?

what use now his dying flesh his pouring blood?

what use now the hopes of returning home as he thought he would?

what use now the mantlepiece photo of his smiling face?

whar use now his Mothers arms empty place?
