No More Shade

Under the canopy resting and weary

too much success for Jonah

who brought a word to Nineveh

the people repented

and Jonah was angry with God

 
How can such a warring people

find salvation from you God

then the worm came

ate the tree

no more shade

Oyster

 

When the oyster gets an irritation

it wraps itself around the cause

secretes its own cure

and creates a thing of beauty

inside of itself


like when Jesus said

we must forgive seventy times seven

the oyster forgives its intruders

and caresses them in salty liquor

until there are as many as 51


another oyster has 80 some

and this is not an exaggeration

the world’s record

of oyster forgiveness

amazing all who see it!
