Ye of Little Faith

Ye of Little Faith

	   for Thomas Aquinas

Part readily the skin
and readily the pulp,  
as readily the tongues
wild apples bore, 
eviscerate the cores,
and watermelon spit the pits
they cannot swallow.
Let this be done before
the tongues 
wild lemons bore
find no cores.

    Heya, I recieved your comment( yes, I am a self-serving egotist and check my comments) I was NOT trying to disrespect you, was only mentioning that by posting so many poems at once, people might skip over a lot of them....but you gave a good explanation of why you are doing so, not that it is my business anyway. Chris.

    Christopher, The reason I have posted so many poems is because I am older than dirt and i wanted to get them all in one place so I could send them to my disbelieving adult children who probably still don't believe Pops wrote this stuff. Most of these poems were published in one place or another, beginning in 1969 and continuing through yesterday.

    Man, you post a lot of might have readers pass by some of your gems this way. Regardless, I really enjoy the premise of this write. Very well written. Chris.
