Man

Follow the leader.

The sheep tumble off the cliff.

Into the raging river;

Under the order of man.

Who are you to say to me

That I am not “the one”?

Why am I not worthy

To save “kingdom come”?

One by one.

The sheep drown in the current

Battered broken lambs;

Under the order of man.

Why was I not chosen?

I am a woman after all.

Why am I not on par

With Matthew, James, or Paul?

It’s not their fault,

Mindless wandering sheep.

Victims of instinct

And god’s careful hand.

Under the order of man.

I am a victim of circumstance:

No more and no less.

A slave to fate,

Humanity’s duress.
