Definition of Tragedy

  The pope blames ‘man’ for global warming,
but in this underplays divine providence,
that global warming is a consequence,
what in each act of ‘man’ is truth manifesting –
it could not have otherwise been.
 
The congregation in Charleston blames the devil
himself, though forgiving of the instrument,
to sustain a stance of righteousness, endorsed
by a singing president; but the shooting,
it could not have otherwise been.
 
Then in Tunisia people mown down
by a crazed gunman with the stamp of ISIS,
murdering left, right and centre, but
you might as well blame God, providentially
it could not have otherwise been.
 
Disaster, tragedy, when it occurs
is locked in a sequence of events
that as in everyday living is fulfilling
of compelling affections that come to effect
what could not have otherwise been.
