for what

Advent 2 - Year A
prepare ye
an end to all so far known
is in the offing
never is it the same river
that is stepped into
prepare ye
broods of vipers and oligarchs
will have their night
safety in numbers
is no safety
prepare ye
fruitless trees and old forests
face the same fate
a greed of entitlement
spreads quickly
prepare ye
yet seedtime and harvest
continue
each newly sprung
surprise
prepare ye
an unexpected shoot
from a long-dead stump
greens and signals
deep surprise
prepare ye
stand with arms widespread
defend and deliver
hope joy peace trust
all else falls
prepare ye
