Archive for the tag “good news”

wild wild ordination

there is good reason to cheer
for the boys are free to go
released from recent obligations
that left them silenced

neither church nor state
had the power to hold them
(or so the story goes)

back on their horses the boys
bolted out of town
firing blanks at the moon
and rehearsing gospel music
hellbent on delivering the good news
wherever there is none

december two thousand fourteen
