If Only…

If men could walk on water,

they’d fool around all day,

hang by the village fountain

do tricks while people pay.

If we could snap our fingers

make all injustice right–

our legs would turn to ramen

for we’d never learn to fight.

If rulers knew, unquestioned

the truth on every hand,

they’d sit in indecision

and never give command.

Learn truth, do good, work wonders

and strive to climb the hill.

But know, and rest in knowing

you do Another’s will.
