Tale of Two People-Trees (Psalm 52)

Know-it-Alls shoot up fast, grab the limelight,
show off, boast, posture, multiply branches.
For a time these invasive blabbermouths
hold ruthless sway, but hollow, rootless trunks,
diseased bark, limp limbs foreshadow their fall.

Love Learners grow slowly, deeply rooted,
grounded in old growth faith communities.
These vibrant forest citizens absorb
carbon, clear the air, emit oxygen.
Their kind presence persists, boosts everyone’s
health, recruits new Creator Praise Raisers.
