Monday Morning

My bread maker makes a loaf of bread

And fills my kitchen with the fragrant smell of flour

My house is warm and peaceful

This Monday morning hour

I sit awhile and read a holy book

Benedict on Holy Week

And the life it took


I go on You Tube

David Starkey there

A tremendous history teacher

Sit and listen there

History is our teacher

See what we have done

Often we repeat it

Deadly bomb and gun


Atrocities scream out at us

What are we going to do?

Tempted to retaliate

That is nothing new

Stand your ground and block him

Bring him to see sense

Seek negotiation

That is true defence
