Prayin’ Mantis (The Preacher of the Pit)

Written in tribute to a WordPress ally, Minister Aldric Johnson, M.A. who helps keep some colour on the tongue of the good Lord’s name. Be Blesstified!

snored my way thru
another ‘service to
no one’ Sunday

not ’cause i’m dissin’
the good lord, perhaps
t’was just i’s lack
of patience,

’cause preacher of the pit
spoke out like poorly
woken coma,

and bridged his spindly
twig fingers like some
prayin’ mantis,

passed me the donation basket and
told me i’m in for hell if i
don’t make with my
n’ quick.
