Earthquake in Afghanistan

Houses tumbling down

Natural disaster

To add to Taliban


War unending in Ukraine

People lying dead

Killed by heartless autocrats

Not right in the head


Local builders Bridge of Allan

Son extends his house

A forever home he’s thinking

For children family – mouse?


For Robert in his farmer’s field

Upset the local station

Drove out a mouse from his own bield

A sorry aggravation


Each life a local edifice

Build upon a rock

The word of God to steady us

Against a world of knocks


Let sorrow come let storms arise

Let rain fall from the sky

Stand rooted in the word of God

All evil to defy
