today good people

met

they talked

and prayed

maybe did the praying

first

it’s Sunday

but it could be on a Friday

or a Wednesday

or a Tuesday

you know, any day

I’m sure

in any hour

x

they pray for other people

for the Earth

for peace

for wisdom

for discretion

when it truly is

the better part of valor

x

they won’t quit,

these folk

they’ll meet again

talk and pray

or maybe pray first
