Empty Church, free of worship. Solemn words trapped in stone wall. Echoes of song long since dissipated. Redundant Reverends, Disconnected Deans, And Perished Priests. Age has eroded the congregation. Faith in a Power displaced by modern life. No time nor inclination to pray: Hymns have too many lyrics They offer no repetitive melodies. As belief in Him erodes, Faith in the Establishment remains, It's failing flock clinging to the rock, Demonstrating their faith in His return Through small hopelessly hopeful acts, Such as a 'Clergy Parking Only' sign.
