Charlie Rose For Lent - Poem by Bill Grace

I have given up Charlie Rose for Lent
The sparkling cognoscenti of the world
It is my terrible atonement
For all my sins of knowing
When I have known so little
While suspecting even less
Of sin's great power to rule.

    This poem is clear as crystal, despite my ignorance of the man himself (I did check on Google) . You don't waste words, Bill. I like that - and a genuine humility and gentle humour which shines through your work. Love, Allie xxxxxxx (Report)Reply
