You Filk Up My Senses

Maureen marks St. Ephrem’s day and invokes him as patron saint of filk.

Filk is, according to Wikipedia, “a musical culture, genre, and community tied to science fiction/fantasy fandom. I once worked with an award-winning filker named Randy; but I doubt he ever asked the intercession of St. Ephrem, as he was a devout and ardent Baptist.

Maureen even adapted one of our saint’s songs in this very modern idiom.
