A Faux-Pas of a Celebration

Exultant excitability chase Leaving a bad taste A faux-pas of a celebration In place of jubilation Camera smiles full of lies All the party in disguise Veiled in ceremonious style Triumphant distractions to beguile Hush-hush in a clamorous hilarity A dressed-up gaiety Revelling with wine and in consternation Addled and unable to form an illation The after-truth hurt multiplied Feelings of exclusion intensified The devil has been sold a soul through the back door Of someone I adore

I really like this poem and am using it in a sermon series celebrating grace and contrasting it with legalism.

Hi Christopher. Shouldn't you ask my permission to use my poem? I still don't understand why you are using it?
