Poem: ‘Termination for Cause’
From Hugo Schwyzer via the Revd Beth


Non serviam in lyrical form.

As a friend sharing my theology and churchmanship who’s also very cultured and well-read has explained the pagan approach to these things is a perennial temptation: a contract or bargain in which you do the prescribed ritual to get what you want, good or bad, and the gods owe you one.

Like Salieri in the work of fiction Amadeus.
