Ceremony of Sanctimony

Ceremony of Sanctimony
23 January 2011

Doing as advised and authorized
Britton was galvanized to be baptized.
Following the Mormon tradition
And rules for admission
He had to wait
Until he turned eight.
As is usual and customary
There were kids from the Primary.
Adults acted as witness
To make sure of form & fitness.
Now in humility or pride he can boast
He was given the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Grandparents from both sides
Were there in case he backslides.
His parents didn’t say it out loud,
But they were all smiles and proud.
Larson has a few years to learn,
And then it will be his turn.
Uncle Al was a fly on the wall
To write a poem about it all.
