NaPoWriMo 3/4/16: Whatever

I used to believe in white chargers and in chain-mail knights;

Had faith that God, the Universe – Whatever –

Would come a-galloping to save the day.

 I weep for jaded angels and for melting unicorns,

For those wings of mine that first refused to sprout

Then failed to feather; for the Silver Ladder

You promised you’d let down so I could climb.

But you didn’t – did you – ever?

suckers

 Today I prayed my final ever prayer

Addressed to God, the Universe – Whatever –

Abba, my Father, why hast thou forsaken me?
