Epiphany 6 B


choosing choosing
twenty-four seven
choices come and come
in your face
kneeling begging

to look a choice in the face
is to look at G*D's face
no backsides here
will I won't I choose
will you won't you choose

turn and turn again
a choice is still here
and there and everywhere
lepers and saints
each have choices

part of choosing
is whether to be
saint or leper
to heal freely
to freely tell

for now and ever
we rejoice when hiding
in the countryside
or visibly confronting
today's ills and options
