The Shepherd

He’s frustrated, this man in his office
Yet still hopeful or he’d best move on out
This depression: something the flock has missed
Will never give them a hint of his doubt
Those years he spent to be educated
Lend almost nothing to the task he now works
Discourse has always been underrated
Trod upon mostly by people who lurk
In committees keeping humble and poor
He struggles to see some good in his life
Always waiting, waiting, waiting some more
He prays to the One whose burden is light

For listening to the one he calls LORD
Means serving this One and never the hoard
