The Friday Challenge for Real Toads is a word wit Laurie. The task is to write a poem around the word miscreant.
Devout and miscreants gather
sitting in their respective pews
both appearing to listen
to the minister’s sermon.
Yet their minds wander
thinking private thoughts:
charitable, loving and kind;
greedy, lusty and judgmental.
The pious or the miscreant~
one cannot tell by casual glance.
Only the inner heart will reveal.
