behind church pews

four Muslim girls 
sunshine and colour
praying side by side
behind empty pews
St Mary the Virgin Church 
in the old city of Oxford  
each a third-
Christian, Jew, Muslim
each a third-
Black, Brown, White
are we really so different?
or is it all just an empty front?
a never-ending charade
that one day will come to fade
Children of Abraham 
-just let go-
