this very hour

Lent 2 - Year C 

this very hour

scram and skedaddle
they are out to get you

not realizing they
hadn’t thought it through

all they had was force
applied over time — exhausting

implacable hardness
just can’t keep up

new life casts off
once helpful scabs

yes hardness was once
a lesser evil

but consolidation of lesser harms
escalates back into great loss

to reduce the lesser further
requires greater care of the young

so prophets talk crazy talk
careening through time

bring everyone together
affirm our common need

protecting class status quo
guarantees further woe

cast that demon out
through each healing

until a blessing way
is our blessed way
