Gods and Heroes


Today is one day in a heatwave


Some will suffer in silence

And might be found anyway

Some will reach out to ask for help

So many are so bad at that


And there are those who

Will reach out to give it

Class and qualifiers will not matter


For all the sagas

All the stories of the past

They matter

Sometimes they teach

If we will learn


But more important still are the

Rough-edged, awkward things

The good will do today


Jesus saves

There will be companionship today
