Richard Cory

He tore the Bible in half
pretending it was the Spoon River phone book.

His thighs were as big around as tree trunks,
his bulging biceps admired

by muscle-men wannabes.
The religious girls giggled,

and the clergy would be scandalized,
but the rest of us just yawned,

and figured Richard Cory
would outlive us all.
