Food for Thought-Thomas, or Dead People I Do Not See


There is something askance,
My head and heart,
aren’t quite right,
I do not want to take a chance,
Do I need medicine tonight?
For my friends are easily amused,
Thomas, your screws are loose,
M. Night Shyamalan I am not,
The Sixth Sense was I not given,
Dead people I do not see,
For me to believe,
Jesus must meet me
At Starbucks,
Sometime after three.
