To a Bunkshooter...For Richard and Carl


the evangelist slipped
fell broke his hip.

he was scheduled to go
save and heal in India
but there is no making it
now

sadly his wife can't help him
she has a bad back
so he is in the nursing home

not wishing him
any ill will
I found it all a little amusing.

he told me once
'be like the Apostle Paul
content in all things.'
