Can You Imagine

Can You Imagine

What else could I possibly ask anyone for
Except poems like mine who people adore
And decided to write more as requested
Hoping that they will be easily digested.

Once absorbed by an ambiguous brain
Even if outside or standing in the rain
One you like best will be hard to decide
And if I said everyone would have lied.

Might not find an exceptional perfect excuse
So rather then lose go ahead and choose
Maybe one or two you happened to miss
Because I was declared persona non gratis. 

Could be Catholics who are found everywhere
All rich without a worry or an incredible care
Anyway why would anyone want to deny us
And say Catholic people are perfect and pious.

Through all of their rules we then had to wade
To Episcopalian made the cumbersome trade
Where Catholic services all have been butchered
And put together again they were all sutured.

So what if Catholic or Episcopalian does apply
To God in heaven we will have to answer why 
No longer could Christ stand us anymore
Became brash and gave us cross He once bore.

A little bit of Will Rogers got in my way,
Wouldn't you say.

    So very in depth and very materialistic imagery, you've utilized quite well James. Enjoyed reading this with much delight... Eve
