A Moral Tragedy

By Emile Pinet

Emma was a little girl of fourteen
with an inquisitive mind and kind heart.
And on most days, she’d drop by the Abbey
on her way home from her job at Walmart.

She would daydream of becoming a nun
imagining tending to souls in pain.
And it gave her parents a sense of pride
knowing the depth of love the world will gain.

With some persuasion, she entered the park
to drink in the beauty of a small stream.
And there she was assaulted by a monster
her throat cut to stifle her feeble scream.

A moral tragedy beyond compare,
it makes you question why God’s so unfair.
