    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
