*N.B. (Credit and thanks go to my best friend and mentee, Rose Benedicte Gregoire, for suggesting changing the first half of this poem's title to, "In God We Trust." As a poet, I hope all my readers henceforth feel it is a change for the better.):


With loving hands about our hips
and lustful thoughts so hardly chaste,
let locked together be our lips
as love commands that we make haste:
for in love and in God we trust,
in them here in this psalm's the thrust.

Tonight we are an ardent pair
as we do our impassioned best
to disrobe ourselves and so dare
to expose our fair, lovely breasts:
for in love and in God we trust,
in them here in this psalm's our thrust.

Full of fervent, delicious zeal;
we make love while it's pure delight
to show the world we'll not conceal
what seems so wrong but feels so right:
for in love and in God we trust,
in them here in this psalm's main thrust.

With courage and with strength, we dare
stand strong and fight for what's our right
to love, live, work and prosper where
e'er we are, secret or in sight:—
for in love and in God we trust,
in them here in this land we must!
