A history-maker in the making

He stands discalceate

before awesome glory

of blazing bush, unconsumed –

attention fully focused


Holy ground, majestic voice

encounter super-natural

life-transforming energies

pouring into humanness


Over-awed and stammering:

“Here I am. Send someone else”

But long-suffering Creator

draws him out in full surrender


Prince of Egypt thus becomes

Mighty in both word and deed

Wages war on intransigence

Liberates downtrodden people
