Crux and Crucible

Murder is no better than cards

if cards can do the trick.   –C.S. Lewis

 

It is ours, anyway.

On credit, we buy the new table.

On loan, Benjamin’s insurance.

Our future, saved away—we’ve paid.

Recession requires deft,

alternatives. Even the Lord

has said it: and him that taketh

away thy cloke, forbid

not to take thy coat also.
