No I won't go

Taken from Jonah

No I won’t go
I won’t I will flee
run away I will not
do this what you ask
because I know what
you will do when they
repent you will forgive
you will relent and not
destroy them let me turn
my face to the rock
and die. I cannot
face your compassion
for the undeserving
I cannot countenance
your forbearance and
you ask me if with
your great heart if you
should care let me die
in the heat let me die
in the sun
