WAKE UP CALL FOR CHRISTOPHER HITCHENS “I will never understand The alcoholic mind” Words of a devout Catholic woman Lacking nothing very much Too much, perhaps, became of him, In this world he put his trust- In clever words, wit and Gin- A handful now of unlived trust, The mindlessness of thoughtless sin- His age corroding now to dust; How darkly do our lights grow dim. What kept one up on other nights -A brillance but adoring- The sleeplessness of man's insights In eternity now snoring! The Long Hangover Only faith and prayer can cease--- Confronting now Eternal Mind--- Waking up to rest in Peace
