Come To Think Of It

Come To Think Of It

Religion never gripped me,
Faith must have passed me by.
I was Christened C of E,
But never made the tie.

So, I've never done confession,
Though I have surely sinned.
And contrition without expression,
Is like whistling in the wind.

Adoration, stained, and set
In lead, against the light.
Baptismal signs, made to whet
Doctrinal appetite.

No, I never really got the call,
But I am still a fan
Of tolerance for one and all,
And love for my fellow man.
