The church spies its image
In the sheen of the world,
And primps.

Or vice versa.

Higher Math

Is inversely
Proportional to
The measure of treasure.

My personal Pope

He wore a fedora and overalls,
Often together.
Kept him from Rome.

Middle-aged when Kansas called,
He adopted me anyway.
And six more of my ilk.

I called him Papa.
He ruled.
And I'm the better for it.

He died.
No smoke. No pomp.
Just adopted by his Father.

Harold L. King
