And the other will be too true as well
Once in Germany a Spanish man
asked this American
how to use the phone.
Now I’ve studied Spanish
in my day,
but the year of the day was long before,
and now I live in Holland.
In Holland they speak Dutch.
That means not much to a Spaniard,
but sadly Dutch
words were the only words
I could think of to help the Spaniard.
I had thought at Pentecost
God had set it aright,
but clearly we’re still lacking light
when an American in Germany
speaks Dutch to a Spaniard!
This is rude
compared to other flowers.
But we’ll not dismiss
so striking a guest.
Not the last, but the four
accompaniment to our daily bread
It’s hard to be a dad.
It’s hard to do the right thing.
It’s hard to know what the right thing is.
Sometimes you think you know.
But then you see you got it wrong.
Throw away all the crap of the past
and live like pure people of the present?
