Eat
Poetry By Gerard Haughey

Sit down,
Ye sheep
And Goat
 
And eat-
 
Feed us, we are hungry Lord
 
A plate of pride
We stare
Hungry, we sit.
No.
 
Wealth ye inquire?
No, Lord.
 
Vanity?
A taste?
 
Lust,
Your favorite?
 
Is this the table of temptation?
 
Are ye all not hungry sheep?
 
We are hungry, Lord.
 
Eat then, ye with the goat.
 
Are ye sheep then?
Or goats?
 
Do ye know?
 
For ye have all chosen the
Dinner of sin.
 
Look ye, little sheep
At the table of righteousness
 
There is only One there.
Lo, tis your Shepherd
 
Little sheep.
