Oh God, isn’t it time you came down
to sort out the mess we’re in?

Once upon a time you would have shown yourself
by rattling the mountains
and making the whole earth tremble.
You would have caused such a sensation
that the nations would have shaken with fear
and every enemy would have known who you were –
and how powerful!
For centuries your name was known and feared
by all who knew that you dealt graciously
with those who behaved themselves.
But they also knew that you would be very angry
with those who should have acted justly and fairly,
but who decided not to do so.

And we were among those people.
We knew what you were asking of us,
but chose to take our own path instead.
