Warning: Bad Poetry!

I make absolutely no claims about my poetic attempts, except to say that anyone with any esthetic sense at all may find the following the poetic equivalent of the infamous Driver's Education film. Non-masochists should leave now.

On Sunday morning she rises,
waking to the blaring of the city's carillon.
She takes her daily Communion
Of coffee and toast, her knees to weak to kneel.
Then she waits for her son,
his obligatory weekly visit.

Etched
Into a glass
So bright
It flows
Love's mantra.

"Eat me," He cried.
So they did,
And He died.


Sweet dreams. :)
