Abraham’s Rock.

It takes an artist of brilliance

to understand the pain

and suffering of living inside a man made rock,

to become one with the shell

and survive a week

and come out blinking out the new formed light

and standing weakly for a while

whilst the legs take back control…

…ask many a politician to come out from under the rock

and see them insist

that they understand the suffering of the poor,

the forgotten and the damned…

I salute Abraham

as I wonder who kicked the other rock over

and let in the light on the scurrying creatures.


With thanks to artist extraordinaire Abraham Poincheval.
