to pete on lent

http://theydontmakemodernartliketheyusedto.blogspot.com/2009/05/unseasonal-austerity.html - (a to and fro perhaps)

leanings and leadings
your poem put me in
mind of my wasted lent
so stealing your rhymes
i'll post brief lament:

oh my wasted lent
was unspent and mis-spent
so unlearnt and unkempt
i failed dreams dreamt
of breaking idols once bent
oh help me Lord please
to re-lent

sought and lost
bought at cost
and fraught for
who made me me
and i we them
our sympathies
belie more
i have two
who for them i
would wish to
do or die for
