Lent, 2010


It must be nearly Easter,

Chocolate eggs are in the shops,

Not the little ones on sale all year,

But large ones each in a box.

There're chocolate Easter bunnies,

And fluffy chicks galore,

There is no sense of abstinence.

It's more and more and more.

We've tossed half a dozen pancakes,

Decided whether we will fast,

Do we give up sweets and biscuits? Wondering just how long we'll last.

But amid all these excesses,

Let us think about THAT tree,

And remember who gave up His life,

To save both YOU and ME!


From the Porch Poet
