Who Comes First

summer 2003

God and Family come first

You think you come first

Then that tiny bundle comes along

And erases that selfishness away


Poor husband has lost his rung;

He is waiting in the wings

Until his name is called

For his second audition


Along the way selfishness comes back

It sneaks up on you slowly

Wreaking havoc on your friends and family

When will the world right itself?


You think you’re doing right by them

That they are happy

But that is what you are telling yourself

Changes need to occur


We need to get back to simpler times

Re-evaluate our core values

Renew our vows and covenants

To our spouse and children


God and Family must come first

They deserve at least that much
