Remedies for the Spirit
 
 

Bananas

 

Nuttier than a fruitcake, crazy as a loon;

           Unbalanced and deranged, howling at the moon.

 

 When only God makes sense, stay close and do not stray.

           God’s the only sanity that’s needed for the day.

 

When the world seems like it’s mad, and lost without a clue,

            Have faith that all is well and turn to you-know-who.

 

A few cards short of a deck, “Rational Beware”;

           Unstable and confused, clearly not all there.

 

When only God makes sense, stay close and do not stray.

           God’s the only sanity that’s needed for the day.

 

When the world seems like it’s mad, and lost without a clue,

            Have faith that all is well and turn to you-know-who.
