When the world’s leonine roar
deafens and devours you
When your thoughts have curdled into
a damp and sour mass
And when you can’t beat away
those buzzing gnats around you,
is just another name for gas.
So don’t cower, dig your feet in.
Never give your ground.
Also prepare: buy bug spray,
saltine crackers, ear plugs
These are helpful. Umbrellas
will never be around.
So when treacly tar glops out of the skies
Drink! – let life be your only drug.
The Bible has taught me that the world is broken, and sometimes, it really does feel as if life is just some terrible struggle to survive. But I don’t think the Bible is about survival. The Bible tells me that the world is broken, but that it is still beautiful and that it can still be great – and that’s why the Bible is not about survival. It’s about making every moment count.
