Exemplar With A Due Date

in Poetry

I’ve out-sourced
the well being
of my immortal
soul
to a Bible
inerrant
in Biloxi

She Church goes Bible Studies
beseeches petitions
hand- wrings
Psalm sings
refrains from vice
dice rock and roll
dancing and ogling
sisters in the city
come spring

And all in my name
Amen
for decades and with guarantee
Amen
this Bible
inerrant
in Biloxi
initially billed me
quarterly
about a year ago
monthly
now a missive
just this morning
she will charge me
weekly
for the care
and concern
of my immortal
soul

I’m spry yet retired. I reside in the inner city of a major metropolitan area of the United States. I read politics. I watch baseball. I hum along with the tune. I June swoon, and moon the bad poem. Post here, are old and new. Opinions are my very own, except when wrong.
