The picture painted
a thousand words but the rules
are five seven five.

When he put black snakes
in the walls to eat fat rats
my barn time was done.

Just like teenagers
the almost grown fillies posed
for pictures that day.

Such a lonesome song
the whippoorwill sang that day
in late ev’ning shade

God’s house is dying
piece by piece she falls away.
Awaken heaven.

Some say the old church
should be burnt or torn down not;
keep trying to stand.

Heaven awaits her
a place was made long ago
for this house of God.

““““““““““`

What’s holding her up
are the hands in heaven that
once folded in prayer.

She put a long tub
in the rose bed for herself
to soak at sunset
