BETRAYED

“Won’t you pay your debt to God?”
the letter said, signed Parish Council,
Committee in charge of Finance.
“Why don’t you pay your debt to God?”
My husband and I don’t like those parish envelopes,
we like to give and not to count the cost.

“Peace I leave you,” Jesus said.
“My peace I will give, but first let’s have
a report from the Building Committee.”
The report was read,
and Finance left
to raise thirty more pieces of silver.
