An angel held Paul back.
This was not the kind of guarding
he believed a guardian angel provided.
He should have read the fine print.
The bully skated away scot-free.
The bully was a nun in a habit.
She skated on a rink not a river.
What goes around comes around.

Paul wondered if bully nuns
had guardian angels.
He did not believe the saying
the clothes make the man—
in this case the habit
makes the nun.
