William Strode loved to recite aloud
a public orator so proud
Chaplain to the Bishop of Oxford
perhaps he read his poetics to his 'Lord'

Premium Member The Chief of Disbelief
    An atheistic 'Chief Chaplain' at Harvard
       The university's raison d'etre bartered

    A divinity school, founded to spread God's word
       The goal now, 'equitable neighborhoods'...

Oh My God
I pulled back the screen,
“Oh my God!” said 
the patient who'd seen
me from the next bed;
from whom I had heard
a ripe expletive.
“I'm just his collared
representative.”

As Hospital Chaplain this occurred more than once when I appeared from behind the screens. Laughter followed....

blowing frost on a star and gravestone 
quickening our steps like Charlie Chaplain
turning maple leaf into rubies and gold
churning flocks into wind splashed shoals
now we're hunched over like Quasi Moddo
the homeless sinking deeper into their hole
November struts about and barks like a

The Army Chaplain
Tooled up, the army chaplain
Is wielding the words of God
Straight in for the kill
With ‘The work of His will’
And ‘He came not with peace but the rod’

The sixth commandment is tricky
A most inconvenient law
For the turn of a cheek
On the battle field bleak
Is far from conducive to war

So, pity the army chaplain
And the conflict that rages within
As the ranks of the dead
Tramp a march through his head
And he murders his conscience with gin

Courage
Courage
Constant displays of spirit
 Never in the vein of the culprit.
Ongoing capacity to overcome strain
  Never over-run by any sprain
Unrelenting to be broken by failure
 Never undone always finding an answer
Resilient to opposition
 Never defeated demeanor of a chaplain
A temperament  true to one’s morals
  Never at a loss to stand up to evils
Genuine firm determination
 Never weak always a bastion
Enduring tenacity to achieve
 Never give up, with the power to believe...
