Heaven sent a covering for all the world last night.

Was it red?  Was it orange? (Imagine such a sight. K)

Was it yellow, green, blue?  What would these hues do?

Was it purple?  Was the covering indigo?  No.

Always thinking of “me,” “my,” and “mine.”

 

Social animals of highest crust,

And dregs of men smeared with labor’s dust,

Are all alike, all made in fearful ways,

Which ought (everyday) us to amaze. -eab, 4/9/08
