You’d have to be crazy
to drop what you’re doing and go.
Standing there minding their own business
doing what they do best
casting their nets.
They drop their lives and go.
Still it’s what we do
what people do:
cardiac nurses on the code team
women in labor
children who need the potty
teenagers finding out about a party
neighbors running to help someone down the block
sitting around on a Sunday morning
doing what we do best
waiting for our weekly feeding
Will we drop our lives and run?
