Sometimes Perhaps

While strolling through the park
I remembered, "Those who stoned 
Stephen removed their cloaks."

She added, "And laid them at the feet
of Saul."

I said, "I thought the criminal
was the one to be stripped."

She replied, "Sometimes rocks
bring so much hurt.  Even when
they are not thrown."

"So what about g*d giving us 
what we need for tomorrow?"

She paused, looking at leafless limbs, 
"Perhaps we are in the time
when the prophet says, If ten people 
remain in one house, they shall die."
