40 Days of Blogging Day One: Beards

My beard is grown from piety
Of razor there's no trace
You have no beard so I assume
You're lacking in God's grace

Holy water puts the hair
On my bearded chin
You have no beard so I assume
Your cup is full of sin

My beard is like Aaron's which flowed
With oil to the robe's hem
They have no beard so brotherhood's
Not possible with them

The face can feature beard or shame
That's all the choice there is
I have no shame under this beard
On yours that's all there is

Our Lord's beard was plucked and shame
Was heaped upon his head
Perhaps my beard is pride and sin
In prayer I bare my head
