The Age of Reason

By Scott Bailey © 2017

This is the age of reason
What reason then
Behind the starving child
Tortured by hunger pains
What reason
Behind the women
Sold as toys
What reason
The stockpiling and use
Of weapons of blood
One reason
One alone
That pounds every moment
Of our lives

In response to the daily prompt Age
