Z before A

After Mark 10:35-45

A promise:
reverse alphabetical order,
Zenger before Adams;
reverse numerical order,
ten before one;
reverse hierarchal order,
laborer before CEO;
worker before manager;
student before teacher;
soldier before general;
slave before emperor.
The last not last but first;
the lowest not lowest but highest;
servant before master.
To serve not to lead because
to serve becomes to lead,
servant becomes leader,
the world turned on its head
again. The last first, the last
seated first at the wedding feast.

Good thoughts.
I'm still wondering about the chicken and the egg.
