Unanswered Prayer
When i was a boy Mother insisted i attend Sunday School and Church 
each Sunday, 
though she never once stepped through the door. 

i occupied a pew beside my sisters, and thought about baseball, rocks, golf, fishing, 
and just about anything else 
but our Lord and Savior. 

one fine morn there was a special feature—a woman came from afar to play 
glorious music 
on her harp for all to hear. 

wait a minute, i thought. Harp is a light Irish beer, and i'd much rather have 
a cold glass of it right now than her 
and that danged harp.
