Faithful



"Come all ye faithful"
bypasses the ear.
These are the civil, upright and sincere.
ôCome all ye faithful"
advocates the price.
These are the polite, courteous and nice.
ôCome all ye faithful"
cuts away veneer.
These are the cogent, rational and clear.
ôCome all ye faithful"
gathers to the fold.
These are the valiant, intrepid and bold.
ôCome all ye faithful"
bids a mortal mind.
These are the humane, affable and kind.
ôCome all ye faithful"
beckons the ideal.
These are the crucial, authentic and real.
ôCome all ye faithful"
attracts very few. These are the loyal, trustworthy and true.
