Always busy, busy doing
Raising money, baking cakes

A few stalwarts baling water
To keep it afloat
Growing ever more
Resentful
Petty and petulant
Until exhausted with our efforts
Of doing our duty (over years)

And to God
We collapse
Yet limp on…
Under the strain

If I decide to come to your Church
Please let me be…

Mary…
Seated
Quiet

Listening to his voice
Wondering at his words
Marveling at his unusual wisdom
Apparently doing
Absolutely
