A Practiced and Foolish Ash

Year A - Ash Wednesday or Self-Recognition Day

A Practiced and Foolish Ash

piety is a dangerous sport
it needs much practice

so much practice is needed
to go beyond mere proficiency

it is only the best athlete
that can be a clown in their sport

here they can teeter on the edge
of disaster and bring it back

only the most practiced piety
can play the fool

in this piety’s pompousness
is humbled and learned from

if you don’t want to fall on your ass
practice practice with your ash
