MY PRECONCEIVED NOTIONS
He heard I knew one of his
Church members vis-a-vis…
My time in Rehab==
Decided to grab
An invite he knew I’d miss.
My prejudice against him
Are assumptins he thinks I work in…
Or are they true?
Similar to what I hold against him?
His woeking of the Spirit autocratic,
Where no one else better attack it…
I claim an open mind
But when honest find,
Some ideas aren’t automatic!
I think I’m more mature than him,
As a matter of observing, not whim…
A simpler faith
He sticks to it straight,
Pefrforming with an energetic vim1
He and I in our respective “kinds”
Have some poor experience in mind…
Where both were hurt
By the other hair-shirt*,
Which experiences put me in a bind.
I barely get to my own church now,
So I’m expected to go to his somehow…?
Although a change
An attitude better than now.
