Prayer of Fran Eccles
By Edward S. Gault
Fran sat on the porch
Of their family’s home,
Reflecting on their never
Ending tribulations, and how they
Came to be where they were now. They
Lost so much when Joe got laid off.
Only so much was in their
Savings. Jobs were scarce, making it
Unrealistic that he would find another
Real soon. She opened up the
Eccles’ family bible, and prayed.
