Wonder Bread

If you burn an offering, it makes ashes and smoke.

Nobody but you gets blessed, ‘specially not poor folk.

Better, then, burn just a bit, leave the rest for feeding

those who live by serving what other folks are needing.


As you’re letting go of stuff, making your load lighter

you can live in gratitude, and the way is brighter

on the path that God has set, onto which she’s called you.

Follow that adventure’s lead, wherever it leads to.
