Hairbrush tantrums with small children
10 Early church fathers in a row
A chicken that needs roasting
And toilets that need cleaning
And too many places I have to go
Exams to be swatted for
Homework to be done
Small children tied to text books
And us all missing out on fun
Too many fees needing paying
Procrastination wins again
Evening meetings and ships passing
In the corridors til ten
I'm out Wednesday, Thursday
but Monday, Friday, I'm at home
So you're out when I'm in
And when you're out, I'm home alone
Books full of hard concepts and days that are too short
Their needs, my needs and those that we have stored
The life I seek, the life I live, the life I have sought!
What's your will Lord?
To be alive means dealing with tohu w' bohu. Absolutely!
