Artist's Description

“TOUCHING – IT IS NOT “

Maybe it’s just my burning heart;
When someone says from the ‘start’
As if I should truly value their intent,

Touching – it is not;
Tis mostly spiritual rot!!

Don’t patronize me with glib assent
YOUR prayers for me – worth not a cent -
If you offer them as foul incense….

Touching – it is not;
Tis mostly spiritual rot!!

If your empathy is not intense….
I’d sooner that you’d not dispense
Or think even to commence.

Touching – it is not;
Tis mostly spiritual rot!!

To pray as if you had a higher spot
On your knees or on your feet
To provide me this solicitous feat!

Touching – it is not
It’s just spiritual rot.
