DEGREE TO DISAGREE

If I am cold,
You will be hot.
We’re at a spot
And you are cold
When I am not.
It seems a plot;
The tale is told
And its upshot—
This is our lot,
A problem old
Warmth uncontrolled.

          2011 Lois E. Wilson

OUT OF SORTS

A few friends label her divisive;
Her attempts to unify fall flat.
Others declare she is derisive.
To scorn she replies, “I’m no doormat!
You’ve even called me indecisive;
I assert, I’m not so sure I’m that!”

A GUIDING LIGHT

God’s laws and virtues need a retaining wall
Strong and tall enough to stem each beck and call
From the persistent floods of fads and fashion
Spawned by the pressure caused by current passion.
        God’s guidance and commands
        Erode from the demands.
        The anchors of the faith
        Do not escape the scathe.
Bibles receive a new interpretation
Forcing churches to do reeducation.
        But secure in its belief
        And saved by God’s loving reef,
        The denomination
        On a firm foundation
        Calls members to stand brave,
        Repels the tidal wave—
With fidelity to faith and flock,
It becomes a beacon on the rock.

                        
                        2011 Lois E. Wilson
