Magpie Tales 211: Simon Says

Feast in the House of Simon, 1610, El Greco via Magpie Tales

In my house at meat
Cure upon me, yet
I am the example
to be made of forgiveness,
by you, son of God?

Outcast I was, perfume I have not
Let the question reverse itself
Thankful to keep my limbs
But without perfume or hair as rags
You damn me with faint praise


  1. Another mary poem....hmmm...quite thoughtful senior gumbo. You did it better


"Let your laws come undone
Don't suffer your crimes
Let the love in your heart take control..."

-'The Hair Song', by Black Mountain

Tell me what is in your heart...
