A. Dumb Priest Never Got a Parish?


Ask and you shall receive!
that's what my dear departed Mother used to say
I never really knew its soulful meaning until now?
Tempted? ...
I seek!
the leather throne-
the passion of life-
the life in death-
the devilish? mind-
the truthful eye-
the sharp tongue-
the kind heart-
the clever way-
the light in the dark-
the pure love-
the real touch-
the bold kiss-
the body's soul-
the shadow of many-
the man in me...

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
