Bus’ ted



So someone axe’d

Me one fine day

Bill, how cum u never
Go to church?
Least, I never
Seen you there

i figure that’s

Kinda personal

But i smiles at him

“i do. 6 days a week”

So the guy looks

At me like

i lost my marbles

i smiles back & sez

“Inner city bus.”

Toll him i travel…

All the time, ain’t seen
No offerin’ plates
No preachers
Just a ton of
broken folks with
no $ for basics
enough to break
yer heart a hundred
thousand times over
No end to prayer

Strange, i got nuthin’

Against church-going

Figure i was busted

Flat. But that guy

For sum reason

he’s never axe’d

me agin about

my church goin’
