I'm bogged down
Client by client
So I'm not getting my
Fields plowed, painted
And written into fertle farrows.

If someone else did the heavy
Would I be too busy
Managing and marketing
To notice the whisper
On the wind?

Time management:
Filling my basket
With left-over fish
After five thousand
Have been fed.

See by satellite telescope
In deep space
The two Greek letters
Alpha and Omega written
In the clouds of stars
How could we have
Overlooked a God
So huge

Preserve, O Lord

Preserve in your people, O Lord,
 beauty and truth,
Love light that proceeds
only from you,
literature and music
 that so enriches
all our lives
with standing ovation,
Lest we descend,
slip and fall
into beaten drums
of drunken darkness,
gnawing our knuckles
and sleeping with the beasts.
