At Church on Sunday Morning

I think of my upbringing and going to church
My mind keeps going but I am left in a lurch

Childhood days the shoes shone and were polished
Glanced down today at my minister’s feet his shoes were demolished

NO not physically but they were sandals, oh my
I guess at communion one should not spy

My childhood days were brought back to my mind
You only wear sandals when weather is hot and not so kind

Back to reality I come in a hurry
It not the shoe that counts, don’t get in a fleury

In the good book in pictures men wore sandals they did
Do not think that today we should be any different, relax and don’t think GOD forbid

One has to remember you go to church to  kneel and pray
Don’t be judgmental or you might be lead astray.

Communion was good and one does feel relief
Just you go and enjoy, that is the belief.

So never mind the upbringing and what you were taught
It’s one of those things that just matters not

I am sorry to say it must be my age
Forget what I said AND TURN THE PAGE
