Breaking Bread

breaking bread

Need to bake hot cross buns
for Easter doesn’t surmise
I’m devout anything unless
queue avoidance qualifies

I know I’d surely make as
good a bun as any baker,
and by adding glaze and
batter crosses earn reprieve

Tho’ it’s for you to say; I’ve
been crucified too long to
keep in mind exactly why
I am suspended here

But I recall a recipe for joy
maintains your need when
breaking bread is hands
which have been freed
