AT THY KNEES: A POEM

Updated on April 22, 2012


Vain and blasphemous, have I been

From virtue and conscience, I constantly wean

Indulgence is pleasurable

It revives my spirit, depressible

My days have been light and buttery

I’ve cruised through, unscrupulous, fluttery

Yet Lord! The dark hour is again at hand

And I call on you to undo the plight of my sinful errand

My grace! My liege! Show mercy!

Let not indifference or repulsion befall me

For I have none but thee

To purge my vision and make me see

Do not bestow thy wrath

For my wages have sufficed, me, to scathe

Once again! Destitute, as before!

At thy knees! I implore!
