“A Warning” by Daniel Pearce.

I don’t know whose granting wishes these days

Some sorry self-elect,

Maybe no one, maybe God.

Too busy to do their job correct.

Oh and your timing?


I was worried about my mid-life crisis

I can’t believe you had the nerve!

Specifically the right one

To take half my sight

Halve my ability to see your creation

What gives you the right?

To mess with a man’s periphery

Did I see too much? At twenty-nine?!

Explain that mystery to me.

You want thanks for the remainder?

Gratitude for my fortune?

Pray I keep my good eye

Till long after my son is grown

Or I’ll show you the true meaning of blind rage

You’ll reap what you’ve sewn.
