Our Sunday best

Oh, Lord!

by Susan Larson

What has become of Sunday best?
The hat, the gloves and all the rest?
What's with the jeans and grubby tees
With vulgar slang? In church? Oh, please!
Tight pants with wedgies I eschew
On fat old frumps plopped in a pew.
I may be old, I may be odd,
I like to get dressed up for God.

It's not just teens traipsing in with grubby clothes. It's women in their 80's living in gated communities who stand at the altar rail looking like this picture.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
