2018 Sonnet 45

Bless his heart! Does he really know what’s what?
He tries, yes, but he’s in over his head.
Trying too hard for too long, has he not?
We gave him a chance, but that chance is dead.

We had high hopes, but the job isn’t done.
Isn’t it time to let someone else try?
I know we were hoping he was the one,
But that didn’t work; time to say good-bye.

Times are a changing, but he stayed the same,
He just doesn’t have the drive anymore.
I don’t think he’s trying; his words are so lame,
And they sound like something he said before.

Blood in the narthex leads to the culprit.
Time for fresh blood to lead from the pulpit.
