The Parallel


What lights a town

from house to school

by bulb, and panel switch?

A road up high-the Power lines

hung on crucifix.


Through City block

across the world

in places over sea

they celebrate the gospel

of electricity.


The day that darkness

left for good

The night that shined with glow

until that is the monthly bill

passed their beaming homes.


And, hopelessness overwhelmed

where all the plugs had worked

but, by their faith, and money paid

the Power was restored.
