An imagined conversation between Father Francis Duffy and Yul Brynner as the King of Siam




hard,eh?
to be rooted
planted at the crossroads


watching the whole world 
wig out and fly in your face 
refusing to kowtow


face forward, mate
stare down the dawn
with eyes like campfires


let ‘ em see
let ’em know
never were men braver

  1. Oh my sweet Rene,how you get our imaginations working. In church today, Matthew looked up at me and asked,"Mommy, do you think my toys are talking to eachother since no one is home?" LOL Yeah, you know what he's been watching! hahaha! All in the inaginations of our minds… Lovely 🙂

  2. I think at some point Yul would have dropped his Ten Commandments line "He will hear me. For I am Egypt."im sure of it
