heaven  < 2 of 4 >


 

kingdom of heaven 

holding the baby
playing the fool
taking the hindmost
knowing the score
choosing the short straw
facing the music
bearing the cross

these are our rights


cf Matthew 5 vv 3 & 10  Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Second of four poems in the sequence Heaven.
