Excerpt

God, the one and only--
  I’ll wait as long as he says.
Everything I need comes from him,
  so why not?
He’s solid rock under my feet,
  breathing room for my soul,
An impregnable castle:
  I’m set for life.

How long will you gang up on me?
  How long will you run with the bullies?
There’s nothing to you, any of you--
  rotten floorboards, worm-eaten rafters,
Anthills plotting to bring down mountains,
  far gone in make-believe.
You talk a good line,
  but every “blessing” breathes a curse.

God, the one and only--
  I’ll wait as long as he says,
Everything I hope for comes from him,
  so why not?
He’s solid rock under my feet,
  breathing room for my soul,
An impregnable castle:
  I’m set for life.

My help and glory are in God
  --granite-strength and safe-harbor-God--
So trust him absolutely, people;
  lay your lives on the line for him.
  God is a safe place to be.

Man as such is smoke,
  woman as such, a mirage.
Put them together, they’re nothing;
  two times nothing is nothing.

And a windfall, if it comes--
  don’t make too much of it.

God said this once and for all;
  how many times
Have I heard it repeated?
  “Strength comes
Straight from God.”

Love to you, Lord God!
  You pay a fair wage for a good day’s work!
