day 67

And Jesus said to them, "You will all become deserters;"  Mark 14:27a

when we
         maroon
   folks on poverty's isle;
when we
         play hooky
   from learning
   the hopes of little children;
when we
         run away
   rather than racing
   to lift up those
   cast aside by power;
when we
         slack off
   from the simple
   task of faithfulness,
you shake your
      head (but
still keep offering
another chance)
