Water Laps the Boat

I am guilty of minor transgressions more than I admit.
The ringing in my ears is a subconscious alert.

The penny shortage is Covid’s fault.
An extra two million copper coins placed on people’s eyes.

The fly I killed today was one of god’s creatures.
I mass murdered ants that got in the house.

Our dog crossed over the river and rests in the shade of trees.
His ID tag fell off at the river’s edge.

Climb with me to the mountain top
to find new tablets for an updated covenant.
