Paula's Poems

Sellotape and Glue

by Paula Puddephatt

We recite the same words every Sunday.

We all “know ‘The Church’ is true”.

There is no doctrine on the Goddess,

“The Qu’ran” – or any other view.

 

You have to read “The Book of Mormon” -

pray until you “know it’s true”.

But how does that prove that nothing else is?

Sellotape sticks, yet is not glue.
