Scared Heart

The pictures are hung on each Catholic wall
Of the mother and son, their hearts burning

And through each Catholic hall as we walk we
Should think of those two flames, consubstantially

As we think for those hearts these sad Catholic thoughts,
We should trouble to feel our own sad Catholic hearts
Turn their burning to prayer,
Turn their burning without --
For the devil's within us in each Catholic doubt.
