The Quiet Heart

The immaculate heart of Mary

The feast day for today

I associate it with my father

It used to be his birthday

August twenty-second

Now it’s here in June

It follows on from Jesus’ heart

Very much in tune


And over in America

Tumult for Roe v Wade

And the story of ‘Jane Roe’

A sad tale I’m afraid

A girl abused mistreated

From a broken home

Used abused defeated

She finally came to Rome


Abortion is demanded

Because women are abused

And the foolish cry of freedom

Bandied about and bruised

Becomes the one true doctrine

Nothing must take its place

And mutual responsibility

Has lost has lost its face
