Homily

Homily

 

 

I heard the homilist with great surprise.
He actually proceeded with a plan!
He wasn’t merely hanging with the guys.
He wasn’t banging pot on noisy pan.
He wasn’t twisting truths till they were lies.
He wasn’t copying some also-ran.
His prose was full and steady, never chopped.
And when he reached the end — oh, joy! — he stopped.
