Even if having only

One stalwart friend

Presenting male valour

And assertiveness

Yet willing to weep

For right causes

For sin

And for me

I grasp unfalteringly

And embrace riches

Never expected

Or coming from wildest


It is Lewis and Clark

Lone Ranger and Tonto

M’Cheyne and Bonar

Wilberforce and Pitt

Livingstone and Stanley

David and Jonathan

Paul and Timothy

Abbot and Costello

Christ and Holy Spirit.

And I sit back from keyboard

And give wet thanks

To the Giver of all good.
