Why Not Do Away With Sundays - Poem by Donal Mahoney

There are fewer believers now
than at any time in recent history
but they are still recruiting since
lions no longer wait for them
in ancient coliseums.

Believers knock on doors,
seeking to convert folks who are
dining, reading, maybe copulating,
an interruption certain to disturb
even those open to the message.

So why not do away with Sundays,
change to a six-day week
and make every day a work day.
If we do away with Sundays
believers may come to understand

folks on Earth are here to work,
buy nice things, pay taxes
and die at a reasonable age
so other folks can have their jobs
and not rely on unemployment,

the way so many must today.
If we do away with Sundays
we can set believers straight
even if we have to hire a lawyer
and take the case downtown.

If we lose the case, we'll appeal
and if we lose the appeal
we can take a jet to Washington
and picket the Supremes.
In Washington, noise wins.
