The Facts of Death

The Privileged learn the Facts of Life
Before they learn the Facts of Death
The Deprived learn the Facts of Death
Before they learn the Facts of Life
Or sometimes , fatally, together.
Ah Cruel, Cruel World !
Where is your Kind God ?
Or is that idea
Another Heartless Joke
Another Callous Fraud
Meant to mock at those
Who have nothing
To further deprive them ?

The Facts of Life are taught in schools and homes
The Facts of Death are taught by Life , often on the street, in concrete jungles,
And in primordial forests of the Mind.

    The existence of suffering , especially the suffering of the innocent , poses a big question to all thinking minds.
