Flying Foxes

With rhyme, but without reason, poetry ambles along its way:

Flying Foxes, Flying Foxes

Flying Foxes are frightening creatures
when they unwrap themselves from flayed skin,
and circumambulate those features
that led them toward mortal sin.

But what sin, for real, isn't mortal?
The Lord is quite tetchy on that.
At the unreasoned law, they did chortle,
the sinless, now skin-less, fruit bat.

These animal rhymes are getting a bit silly. More realism coming . . .

And to think that I once never gave a flying fox about flying foxes...

Same here. I never gave even a single flying flock about fruity batsh*t creatures of the night.

Sins may be mortal but forgiveness redeems everything.

"Great sin doth draw out great grace."

Did Luther or Bunyan say that? Or, perhaps more importantly, how would Hodges say that?

Well, I believe Luther was the one who said, "Sin boldly!" So . . .
