Our Games and Gabble

By J. Randal Matheny © 2016

No time to read, no time to pray,
No time to think and ponder,
Our games and gabble fill our day,
No room is left for wonder.

Gone is God, and duty undone,
Let come what may — whatever!
Let’s live for now, under the sun —
This we’ll lament forever.
