Feeding colds to starve a fever.

God fearing
dog eared and
hard bitten,
used up and chewed.

I allude of course to myself,

but God fearing?
good God above
one does not fear love

I expect this was explained
by theologians at the
to which I wasn’t invited

imagine how delighted
I would have been to
have sat in and maybe
set the scene
further discussion

perhaps they think
I’m a Russian
or worse
an atheist.
