Before Adam's first election
Must have been the thought of Eve
Nothing less than pure perfection
Should he so easily deceive
Before Cain fain claimed his brother
There was gain and thus defeat
Before Jacob conned his feeble father
and Esau took that bite to eat
Before Aaron's staff stretched fateful
When a night light led the way
Only then a remnant are found faithful
And just those few allowed to stay
Before Moses dreaded Zion's thunders
There were visions of how it ends
We kick the pricks against our blunders
And refuse half the help ...
Staged in horizontal rows: linear like so many Bradford pear trees
Beaming out at us from the 'Society' section of the Sunday newspaper
Complete with full frontal smiles of idealism grafted onto ignorance
'McNeil weds Mullins at Our Lady of Perpetual Sorrow'
'Thompson and Blakely to say vows in garden ceremony'
'Spencer and Lyons to wed at Second Presbyterian Church'
'Barton and Smith exchange vows at Cheekwood Tea Room'
