Merely A Standing - Poem by Dora Flood

Apostles and their apostates
Murderers unrepentant and
Mere manslaughters' mistakes
Epistles, that evokes the language of
Selective honesty, Deeply and creepily

You want to be a doctor, therapist and priest
You are none of these things, as if these positions
Actually help people. They are stations presumably
Of some importance = stature, status, strenghth
It's all in a day's work
