More Emptiness

Regina Puckett


Poor Mr. Tin Man gave his heart away

And Mr. Lion lost his courage the same day

The scarecrow wanted to help but couldn’t

He had lost his mind loving someone he shouldn’t

So they followed the yellow brick road searching

Even though all three were so plainly hurting

No one knew what lay up ahead but they marched

All three souls so hungry and all so ever parched

They had heard the wizard had all the solutions

So they sought out the man’s hopeful resolutions

But back behind the curtain was just more emptiness

Leaving them with their fear, ignorance and heartlessness
