(A Poem - winning entry to a Goodreads' group weekly poetry contest)
The week's topic was "Altar Ego". No, it wasn't a typo error. It's a play on words and it is up to the participants how to interpret and render it in a poem. Here's what I have come up with and it won! :)
I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. Here goes...
A sworn servant of the Lord
Praising and serving in God’s name
Reading, preaching His word
An inculpable man with no blame
