2012_36 Stuffed Animals

Jesus’ disciples argued.
“I’m the greatest,” said one,
only to be shouted down by
those with contrary assessments.
If they, called by You,
behaved like children,
shall we expect better
of waitstaff and clerks,
teachers and police,
politicians, priests, and judges?
Give us patience, dear Lord,
for You are patient,
but keep our expectations high,
even for ourselves.
