Bodie’s Farewell Part IV: Dusty Trails

Part I

Part II

Part III

Unemployed; in dread of the poorhouse; Bodie applied

Far and wide. Umpteen appeals, the sole reply—denied.

Schoolhouse, Cain House, Hotels (near the Shell), and dozens more.

One sample: “Cleanliness and Godliness aren’t at war.”

Seeking absolution, Bodie held fast long past Lent

Yet in the end, moths and rust still gathered. Bodie went.

Take this advice: A dirty conscience craves confession,

Not another sacrifice. Accept intercession.
