Ann's Corner

A taste of FAITH, a touch of LAUGHTER.

Balderdash!


Balderdash

Big headed, bull mouthed lout

Full of self importance

Barging through the china shop of my mind

Shattering my priceless, fragile ego

With his cold and cutting “observations”.

The Champion of my mate

Supportive, warm and PITYING

How can he make me feel like some worm

Squirming, alone, to be coolly squashed

By the merciless boot of his tongue?

Once I could defend myself

Observe his squirming in turn

But now he has found the chink in my mail

And thrusting his pitiless comment to the hilt

He pierces me through with shame.

Ann McQueen (now Justin), written sometime in the late 1970’s or early 80’s.

This poem was based on a real life incident and these were my feelings about it at the time. This man (the lout) went on to become a very dear Christian friend in later years, some time after I gave my own life to the Lord. You never can tell.

It’s not a God honoring poem. I was hurting and this is what came out.

All forgiven now 😉
