Book of Mormon Breakfast

“Can we offer you just one verse today,

A sweet and simple testimony, like

An apple on the way out the door?

Do you have time for a chapter,

Or will you be skipping the full course again?”

And so they call to me every morning,

And I try to ignore the prompting

As I dress and pack.

But they cry as I leave, like

A voice from the dust,

And say,

“We’ll be waiting here

Until you come back

Hungry.”
