Me and Desmond

Campus ministry memories. There are many.

Years ago
Many many years ago
I served on a committee,
A steering committee
For college students
To gather in Colorado.
The snow was thick.
The bus broke down
In Nebraska.
We stayed in a motel
With red flocked wallpaper.
Upon arrival
We met with our speakers.
One speaker
Was Desmond Tutu.
He shivered his way
Through the conference.
We stuffed him
In an overly large
Down coat.
I will remember that picture
Me and Desmond
In the snow.
