Why Not?

Gordon was an old guy

we met in a bar-room;

Andrew clocked him early,

gave a target smile.

Gordon got latched onto

(caught in Andrew’s chat-up)

singularly focused,

singing little songs;

but surprise lurked close

when Andrew met him nose to nose,

asked him in all sweet-ness,

a laser - ‘are you Jesus?’

Shocked he blustered ‘I am not!’

and Andrew caught him - now - ‘Why not?!’
