Written following this week’s Haiku Challenge on RonovanWrites – “Drive and Psycho”
Malevolent exclusion –
Drives vuln’rability to
Shepherd your people with your staff,
the flock of your inheritance,
which lives by itself in a forest,
in fertile pasturelands.
Let them feed in Bashan and Gilead
as in days long ago.
“As in the days when you came out of Egypt,
I will show them my wonders.”
Nations will see and be ashamed,
deprived of all their power.
They will put their hands over their mouths
and their ears will become deaf.
They will lick dust like a snake,
like creatures that crawl on the ground.
They will come trembling out of their dens;
they will turn in fear to the Lord our God
and will be afraid of you.
– Micah 7:14-17
