Beyond the Screen
The neighbors rocking quietly,
Patiently awaiting Heaven,
While away the evening
To the tune of channel seven;
Though the hymn that's on their minds,
Just a Closer Walk with Thee,
Is drowned out by the talk
Of next-door's channel three,
The sound of TVs everywhere
Means Holy Ghosts are in the air:
The God who is beyond conception
They count on for the best reception.
