Well these two darlin’ boys of 4 and 6
Were so full of life and as close as two
Brothers could be…Michael and Mark
Of Athens, TN had their fun in the sun
And played their games as most children
Do but one stormy night the dream of
Two small caskets awake Granny Lou
And it wasn’t long before then prophecy
Came true…their father came to pick
Them up for the weekend right on time
And everything seemed to be fine as they
Headed up to that cabin in the Blue Ridge
Mountains but as darkness fell that night
A demon must have took hold of him as he
Gripped the barrel of a gun and ended
Their sweet little lives…well God only knows
What went on there for the dead can’t speak
For themselves but an eye for an eye and a
Tooth for a tooth he shot and killed himself
Farewell to bad rubbish but we’ll always miss
Michael and Mark just very much but
We know they’re safe in the arms of the Lord
Now these two darlin’ brothers so beloved!

Summertime By Michael Perry

Summertime By Michael Perry short poem

Moth against-the screen flitting at the light-repeatedly being blind- to the source it seeks- reacting over and over-to strive live and beat-long as it can more over- a thousand times-with wings kept moving-relentless-ly until it fails- in it’s attempt to

I Weep Again... dedicated To The Family Of Michael Brown ballad

Enraged we stand in this broken country still living an old brown paper bag blues. While newsprint vividly tells the story but you might not find it on the midnight news. And I weep again, I weep for all… my
