Heartfelt Homily


A girl goes out to see a friend

She never does come home

Assaulted raped and left for dead

That time I was in Rome


Forty years have passed since then

The same old story told

Sarah Everard this time

And dozens since behold


The Pharisee issue washing hands

Before sitting to a meal

While deeds of dark corruption

Are really no big deal


Our sins reveal our attitudes

Where all corruption starts

The selfish lust that lurks within

Our darkened human hearts


If sex is not for loving

And is simply used for fun

It isn’t long before assault

Is neither right nor wrong


The healing of the human heart

Is the question of the day

Examine myself the issue

It does not go away
