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.
