The old pastor sat down to sup
With his large, delicious breakfast.
A messenger stood beside him
One who had spoken with him a very long time ago.
The messenger looked as if he hadn’t aged but a week.
The messenger, joyful, asked,
“Are you a Christian?”
The old preacher replied,
The messenger then said,
“Good, do not ever give up on the faith.”
The messenger received his sweet drink
So stood again by the table.
Joyfully the messenger entreated the old pastor
To a conversation
But the old pastor said,
“I just want to eat.”
