lobbying for sainthood…

lobbying for sainthood

your words
of
caring
an unconditional commitment
to
god’s mission
sets you apart
from others
in this stain glass edifice
words
that echo
off the wings
of marble angels
words
absorbed
into
a plush red carpet
lined with
fine oak pews
oh
how well
you tithe
but
rarely
give
of yourself
or
beyond
an
appropriate
tax level
you’re not
the majority
for
the majority
goes to bed
hungry
and
cold
like
your soul
