I scoffed a chocolate bar
from Bill's store when I was ten
(didn't enjoy it then and don't
relish the image now)
forgiven by Jesus during
those days when a nickel was King
and us boys had so little
noticing only rich kids with
two pair of shoes and
certainly lots of chocolate bars
from their parents
who drove cars and lived
in nice houses. Our
parents looked older than they
should have with too many beer
as treats and fathers home
at two in the morning afraid to
wake up anyone, but did.
Jesus forgave them too.
