Who Gives?

a poem series
a poem series

who gives and takes away;

    who tells the portion where it should go,

    when to lessen its load   when to release in full,

    where it shall land and where to remove.

who gives and takes away;

    when all is said done is anything really done,

    has the last word been heard    the final flag flown,

    who is the judge of all and the jury of none?

who gives takes away.
