Soon

Soon

by Helen Losse

it will likely cost more
to major in philosophy

than math or physics. No
mention of the poet, the artist,

the divinity school student
who argues apologetics

but makes little actual money.
Even Paul made practical tents,

so he could eat. So, be forewarned.
The day will come

when a man will climb a ladder
to repaint the Sistine Chapel ceiling

in a color that reflects more light
than it absorbs,

saving electrical power
rather than souls.

-refers from the phrase “He thinks he’s saving it”  in Val Dering Rojas’ poem The Bloodroot Flower

  1. Helen,
    I love this!

  2. Wow, Helen! Wonderful poem that has a kick at the end. 🙂

  3. Интерсный сайт обо всём тут
    есть позновательное и увлекательное…
