   get up, stretch,
   start the tea,
   cobble together breakfast,
   read the comics, avoid the news,
we all have those
routines that are fixed
            and certain, yet
most days
grace remains an
kindness (well, if someone
  reminds us, we might),

justice whenever
   there’s a major event, so
help us to make these
as much a part
of our daily routine as
   get up, stretch,
   start the tea . . .
