Heaven in a Handbasket

This ride is a ricochet of chaos—

the more we cling,
the more we’re battered,
scattered, scared and scarred—

the more we fight,
the more we’re fought,
and caught, caged and barred—

until we see the Man
behind the curtain grinning,
an empty tomb, the heavens starred—

oh, then we See! and all our cares repay us.
