Some people have poetry,
Some people have pickleball,
But both golf and Pokemon Go
Can be the ruination of a good
Walk. Considering how many
Folks fail to find meaning in church
Services, I’m inclined to question
The rate of return on a tithe.
Ten percent, that’s all it takes
For some people to be sure
Of their place in the Whole
