The Rev. Dana Prom Smith, S.T.D., Ph.D. (3/11/08)

As a friend of mine once said to a kith

Of the southern insurrection now called

The Civil War, “Our sympathies were with

The Union.” I, too, remain unenthralled

With okra, a pod from Africa auld,

A gift of the slave trade. Said when prepared

Well, "It is tasty." Not so, it’s impaired.
