Foiled Again

While reading a morning meditation,
his mind wandered from the words

to thoughts of his construction guy
who, now that he got the check, is

impossible to contact. With irritation
mounting as fast as the polar cap is

melting (which according to a new
scientific study is really fast), his

focus returned to the words in
front of him and he read, “It is the

Holy Spirit of God who prays in us,
who offers us the gifts of love,

forgiveness, kindness, goodness,
gentleness, peace, and joy.” Wanting

to harbor a grudge for just a bit
longer, he conceded, “Aarrgghh!

Foiled again.”
