A Father's Pointless Lament

Oh, heavenly father, what the hell were you doing?
You let those boys drown when they went out canoeing.
You're supposed to be watching, but look what you did,
You turned away once, now I've lost my kid.

Oh, Christ almighty, look what you've done!
I don't believe in you, don't believe in your son.
What can I do, now my little boy's died,
What about his poor mother, and the tears that she cried?

Who can now help us, how can we last
Since we have no more future? It's all in the past.
No one to answer his desperate prayer.
No one can listen, no one is there.
