Verbum Dei

Twelve men in the beginning

reporting unto God

Ten Commandments to proclaim…

devotional synod


Sacred by their nature born

each man immortal bound

Divinity in every word

salvations thorny crown


Choices come and choices go

judgment waits beyond

The weight incumbent, buried deep

embedded in a psalm


Nine will cloister, locked in place

the future theirs to choose

Decisions based on marble text

—Noah’s Ark in view
