Cradle Roll, Chi Rho, CYF solid
Dependable, understandable, open.
Why did moving a few miles upset
The unassailable truth of inclusion?
Come unto me little children, but
Only if your mother is straight.
Never lend your talents to the table,
If you are a divorced person.
A bake sale is forbidden fruit.
Men are allowed to pray.
Women wear gags from birth.
Ideas heard alone from elders
Women cannot teach men or boys.
Still women are 10 to 1 there on
Sunday morn and night, Wednesday,too.
And all revivals with dinner on the grounds.
Oh, yes, most especially dinner on the grounds,
This flat land religions looks down on
My mountain kin, our holy rollers,
Our courage to handle snakes in faith.
I am instructed hate is something different
where grass is blue
and doors slam shut.
