Symbolism

Rosary_-_Dad's

Better you left it at that
no-one but you and three
disaffected attending the
lecture remembered

They were words best
sentenced to ache in their
arcane cradle; a rooster’s
morning call, symbols of dissent

Telling a rosary wont
change a thing – its
string connects with dead
that the beads forget
