Here is my poem for the second Sunday of Advent.
In response to the Gospel of Mark:
Are you going?
I heard he’s by the river forgiving sins.
Do you think he really can?
Pass me the polish,
these spoons sure are tarnished.
Yes, just like my soul, wise guy.
Yours could use a good scrub.
I’ll go with you to the river.
What? Someone better than him is coming.
Oh, I heard that too.
Do you know what he was saying about the spirit?
Tomorrow, let’s go to the river.
Till next week,
