Food for Thought-Giving Up Contempt for Lent

Giving Up Contempt for Lent

I cannot,
I will not,
Give up,
Contempt
For Lent,
Not in a world,
Deluged by evil,
Overrun by sacrosanct complicity,
In mediocrity of an inheritance,
Which we willingly claim as our own,
We cannot be free,
When the fairy tales,
Of sex and capitalism,
Engage the minds,
Of the so called God fearing,
We want our emotions delivered,
our feelings foretold,
love divined,
On hard drives,
And in recycled opinions.

–Richard Bryant
