First Saturday of Advent

Read Psalm 72 and Isaiah 4:2-6

when we head out to
    the mall,
        and find a store
        named 'Justice'
    where impartiality
            is included with
        every gift,
    and fair play is the
            only game
                on the shelves;

when we get up
    at 3:00 a.m.
    on Black Friday
        so we can be first
        in line to get
            the rifles that have
                been turned into
            and the tridents which
                now send fireworks
                    into the sky;

when we go online
    and purchase as much
        as our budget allows
            (breaking open our kids'
                piggy banks, if needed)
    and take advantage
            of the free shipping
        to send it to all
        the broken places
                in the world:

on that day, we
    shall be your
        we shall reflect your
