"God's not in..."

God's not in...


on Seeking the Way III

Cheeky fellow

the one leaning in the doorway

fumbling in his ragged coat

obviously for a bottle of muscatel

or a seedy magazine

You can tell the type

poorly dressed

and always looking hungry

You can bet God wasn't planning

for such a shabby character

to be out and loose

for everyone including little girls

to have to see

when everyone knows

that impure things

can taint the mind and cause

behavior which is loathing

to any decent person

God not intending for this to occur

has taken leave

to vacationing in a holy cave

on a very respectable mountain

and isn't coming back

until there is progress

in the thinking
