It is Not Enough

It is not enough to notice
Terrible things happen.
We must remark that resplendence
Which provides their context.
If all we hear is the hatred
That raves amid sunbeams,
Then we have missed the central point:
It raves amid sunbeams.
Horror relaxes among doves.
Flowers are jealously
Sentineled by brilliant venoms.
To know that monsters walk
Cracking jokes in the rose garden:
That should panic lions.

Dr. Ben Michael Carter
