the missionary

the missionary

He rode a rusty old bike
With a motor that coughed and swore
As it chugged around potholes
Defacing the narrow cemented lanes of my hometown,
Towing a bespectacled fellow in a long white gown
With a gentle pale freckled face
And sharp eagle eyes that caught you by surprise
Before you could hide or disguise
To evade the inevitable sermon
Or stern admonition for missing last Sunday’s worship, again…
For allowing your faith to slip, again…
For following the path of the ungodly, again…

Sinners on the streets cringed
Upon receipt of personalized invitations
to redeem souls lost in translation,
Delivered by this enigma
Who gave up a luxurious life in the Motherland
To labor in a colonial hotbed of turmoil and strife,
Converting rebellious heathens like me
To docile god-fearing men…

James G Paul Sr
