oh Lord

let what is to come

be something new

be something You will allow

to stand on its own

the very goodness You demand of us

and then deny deny deny

oh Lord

whose complexity of creation

has kept us bound

even as you put all liability

on weak limited us

and dare to keep letting our mistakes

pile sin after sin on us

without one lifted finger of help

from You (I have yet to come to terms with

Your disgusting power-madness)

I still (like a fool) beseech You Lord

send us not another edition of Your insanity but

do at last send us something that will land

something new that will finally speak well of you
