day 189

"I would feed you with the
         finest of the wheat,
   and with honey from the
         rock I would satisfy
         you."  Psalm 81:16

you lay out
a picnic
      of Grace's sandwiches,
   Hope's strawberry/rhubarb pies,
      Wonder's potato salad, and
   the finest vintage Peace makes,
but
we
would rather gnaw
         on our bitter
         hearts, and
chug-a-lug
   anger's acid.
