Sacrament

Sacrament

Young men
assemble
White shirts and ties.
More boys gather
Have we told any lies?

Arms folded
All pray
A boy’s voice is heard.
Bishop nods in,
Agreement is conferred.

The taste
the texture
of bread on the tongue
Thoughts directed
To what He has done.

Cup touches
Lip opens
fresh water poured
Christ’s sacrifice
Readied upon a board.

Emblems to eat
and drink
of He who gave
His all for us —
a covenant we made.
