day 73

Happy is the nation whose
         God is the LORD,
   the people whom he has
         chosen as his heritage.  Psalm 33:12

happy is God, when
      we do not make
      the LORD a
            a political idol, but
   offer mercy
      to all in
               need
        (without requiring
         multiple IDs and
         proof of misery);
   establish justice
      wherever oppression
      would build
                 barriers;
   welcome the gifts
      offered to us by
         the very ones
         we are taught
              are not
family.
