Faith Plus a Little Help

by KJ Hannah Greenberg
Eminent doctors disagree,
    Except when issuing despair. 
Then, they decree 
     More than bank books merged; 
Dismayed families
      Feign to hide 
Hopes trouncing by affliction’s
       Many kinds of debt.
Too few paid bills. 
Too little optimism.
Fasts, cries, death, addiction.
Woe on market’s mysteries,
When homes razed by storm,
Or rocked by grief’s winds collapse.
Then small children wail afresh,
Alarming angels into action.
