The Third Sunday of Lent

Third Sunday of Lent

You wonder about the devil inside you sometimes
he squirmed a little
when you went to see “The Exorcist.”
“Scared the hell out of me”
he said
listening to the Beatles
drinking beer
getting fat and lazy.
You think about him now and then in church
and he comes along
now that it’s in English
folk songs and all
Lord of the Dance
Lord of the Flies
swept and clean and so much roomier.
