Appeal to your better angel

This Easter cast aside the profiteering

Multinationals, let them eat their own

Easter ggs, their own puffed up ‘Not a

Lotta chocolate, more carton than candy’

Easter bunnies and rabbits whilst you

Content yourself with the bigger picture,

E. g. a world from which the Lord God

Almighty will not be expunged, removed,

Replaced or otherwise diminished.


There is no need to be a religious fanatic,

Suffice that one looks towards charity,

Generosity and frienship. Be the friend

Who stands out in the crowd, the friend

Who is always there. Lonliness is rife, even

In a world awash with telecommunications,

There are too many people, especially the

Elderly, who never hear from anyone from

One week to the next. Not hard to pick up

A phone and make a call - so what are we

Waiting for?


Easter is a good time to make a change,

Appeal to our better more kindly angel.

Each one of us is a tabernackle, a living

Breathing, moving dwelling of mostly

Good repute. We have the power within

To do what might be seen as God’s work

And why not? Call it what you like, the

Better angel witnin knows our every

Whim and patiently waits for each one

Of us to recognise how good we can all

bee and how much better we can make

The world just by lifting an arm instead

Of a finger, toting a weight when the

Time comes to be tested. Make Easter

Really special this year - your better angel

Is listening.
