Protestant Apologetics

Mainmast (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The colors of our homeland fly atop the mainmast.

The black pennant, beneath

signaling no quarter given.


We’ve taken in fresh water,

a crop of limes,

we’re flush with powder and 24 pound shot.


A sail’s spotted on the horizon

the order’s been given to chase and beat to quarters.


We’re to our stations

to run out the guns

and watch


the distance to our prize

close rapidly

as the boatswain begins a tune

and we all join in.

There is a Sunday conscience, as well as a Sunday coat; and those who make religion a secondary concern put the coat and conscience carefully by to put on only once a week. - Charles Dickens
