Waiting to See

Someone asked if the literal biblical truth I see;
I told her, “It’s all metaphorical to me.”
She squinted, furrowed her brow and said,
“When Jesus comes back, you’ll see.”
“Maybe…. We’ll just have to wait and see.
It was nice meeting, thee.”
“Are you a Quaker?”
No, they used to call me a Shaker,
but I’m too old to shake it up, baby,
so I’ll just sit and wait for my maker,
metaphorically speaking, if you please.”
