Lent in Bygone Days

 

And there we were

at the morning meal

with just a heel

of brown.

 

Tíwas Lent.

Repent, He said,

the kingdom of God is at hand.

In our Land?

Yes, in our very land.

But first the appetite to whet

but donít fret

the kingdom is at hand.

 

So let us stand

and break the bread.

Blood for sinnerís shed.

 

Repent, He said

the kingdom of God is at hand.
