IMPIOUS THOUGHT

Keeping Lent?
Why would I want to keep it?
I’d rather toss it out,
put it in a box for the rummage sale,
give it to the Deserving Poor.
I certainly don’t need it:
it doesn’t fit any more,
and besides,
I never liked the color.

 

I wrote this in 1999.  Things have changed since then.  I’ve always liked purple.
