The exodus

12:50 06 March in Rhyme

Learning the art
of walking away
is a messy
and inexact science
keep it together
whilst going astray
but not in defiance

when weaning is proving testing
and leaving leaves you dry
and a flood of plagues
assaults your earth
you best
be knowing

There’s a promised land in waiting
there’s a rest beyond belief
a king so true
that he’ll fight for you
and escape from every thief.
