I will utter dark sayings from of old… Psalm 78:2

Hearer, O Hearer,
It's the dark sayings from of old,
that frighten us.
Children hide for fear of what the next adult parable
havocs in their tiny lives;
though curiosity draws them out of hiding places
to see what the crazy ancestors always do next.
Decrees.  Laws.  Commandments.
A messy mix more fit for eating
than to place into ears that hear.
Continue to work your works, God,
so we will not forget.
Sometimes forgetfulness saves.
Amen.
