Love Spelled Backwards


The world yearns for retreat

Having been burned

Another lesson yet learned.


Lessons eagerly foretold

For when a child cries

They tell no lies.


Reflections seem upturned

Drowned immortal fears

In a bottom-less glass of beer.


The less we know

More we age

Consumed by critical rage.


Against time we race

Realizing how our great Savior was replaced

Throwing caution to the wind.


For it brings a tear to my eye

Mouth left with permanent distaste

See the Glasgow smile on my face?


What we once knew

Thrown out in upheaval

Love spelled backwards is “evol.”
