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.

  1. …one cannot tell by a casual glance! You got that right. I so loved this whole poem – you really hit it out of the ball park and the photo is perfect paired with these words. Brava!
