More a Club

Ah, church that’s more a club than humble saints!
They live for self and chafe at God’s restraints
and think that he must like what they prefer.
Such pride not even Heaven can deter.

To Wear a Mask or Not

To wear a mask or not to wear a mask,
The question every man and woman must ask;
The trusting child, controlled, is given no choice,
And he who wears it speaks a muted voice.


From fear the grocery shelves are emptied,
The ghost of death has left us frenzied;
If health and life are highest value,
What else but panic can people do?
