    If you want to be in power,
    you have to have money;
    if you want to be invited,
    you have to be somebody;
    if you want to be in charge,
    you had better be rich;
    if you want to be noticed,
    you’d better know somebody.
    That’s the way of this world:
    this tiny planet, tucked away
    in a fold of the universe,
    not the best or brightest,
    nor richest or most important,
    despite our machinations.

    Still, when our Creator
    chose to enter creation
    dressed as a creature,
    God came here: to earth,
    not because we were
    important, but because
    we weren’t, leaving us
    to lifetimes filled with
    having to come to terms
    with love we cannot earn.
