Ash Wednesday!

The Faithful Yearly Call to Mind
Upon this Life’s Sojourn,
Amid the Tedious Daily Grind
A Lesson sure to Learn –
Mortals to Dust Return!

Self-discipline for Forty Days,
However Passions burn,
With Temper that Control Displays,
The Tenet ne’er to Spurn,
Mortals to Dust Return!

All Inequalities that Scar
The Face of Good’s Concern,
All Privilege shall None Debar
From Precept ever Stern,
Mortals to Dust Return!
