The next person to get suspended
(after the two juniors who had
sex in a bathroom)
was the guy who preached in the cafeteria.
He took so much abuse for what he said.
It was like he martyred himself.
No matter what happened, he’d always be there
talking about God to whoever would listen.
(Usually nobody. It was more like background noise.)
When I walked into the cafeteria,
he was gone. Lunch wasn’t punctuated by shouts of
“Read John 3:16! For God so loved the world…”
In a way, I missed him. He was an archivist
of Bible quotes.
