"Be good, be good!" the sisterhood2006 Update: An artifact of faith when worn on the back.
Cry out in holy chorus,
And, to dissuade from sin, parade
Their various charms before us.
But why, O why, has ne'er an eye
Seen her of winsome manner
And youthful grace and pretty face
Flaunting the White Cross banner?
Now where's the need of speech and screed
To better our behaving?
A simpler plan for saving man
(But, first, is he worth saving?)
Is, dears, when he declines to flee
From bad thoughts that beset him,
Ignores the Law as 't were a straw,
And wants to sin — don't let him.
A good Good Friday to my Christian friends, a happy Pesach to the Jews, a strong cup of coffee to the Pagans, apostates and Unitarians and to the Muslims, TGIF?
