He preaches eternal life

Yet his eyes are dark and sunken

He preaches happiness

Yet frown lines dig trenches into his

Pompous, white skin

He is ignorant of the pain

Providing sermon, not comfort

Citing teardrops and rain

Eyes look away

Measuring swirls in the carpet

Anger, resentment, contempt

Right words?

Wrong time

Wrong place
