Anthony Harrington



Lady Godiva
Was never known to drive a
Motorcycle: still, on a Harley, Yamaha, or Ducati
She’d have been a hottie.

The Development of Christian Doctrine

with apologies to John Henry Newman

Do you deny Progress in Religion?
Give me a goddamned break.
We no longer make festive barbecues
Of heretics at the stake.

Anthony Harrington, exiled from Philadelphia to Alpharetta, Georgia, continues to waste his declining years writing stuff that sometimes scans and often rhymes. His collection, From the Attic: Selected Verse, 1965-2015, with 230-plus verses, is being held captive by Amazon. Please ransom a copy or two.
