i ain’t no preacher…

i ain't no preacher

now
i ain’t what
folks
would call
religious anymore
some things
always struck me
as
phony baloney
that
tv evangelist
laying on hands
screaming
healed
healed
then
some paid
participant
in the tv drama
suddenly
rising
from the wheelchair
then
exiting
stage right
a performance
worthy
of
the political arena
and although
when you
laid hands
on
me
there weren’t
no bones
healed
the power
of
your love
surely
healed
a troubled
soul
