Market children (Luke 7:31-35)

What are you like

This blank and rejecting generation?

What words can be used

To describe you?

You are children

Playing market games

In market squares

Complaining to your friends

 

You did not dance to a happy jig

You did not weep for the sad lament

 

And those that live

Like hermits

Shunning comforts

Accused

Of possession

By spirits

Not the drinking types

 

And those that live

Life to the full

Accused

Of gluttony

And drunkenness

Poor choice of fellows

Possessed by spirits too

 

Damned if you do

Damned as you are

But the lives of the accused

Will express the wisdom

Inherent within
