Hearing the call

After Luke 14:12-24

I heard the call
to the feast and wow
what an opportunity 
what a great opportunity
let me check my calendar
on my phone, oh no
it’s packed, I had no idea
how scheduled I was, 
with events, things, stuff,
responsibilities, appointments,
meetings, conferences, gatherings,
luncheons, dinners, filled
with all the important things,
the things signifying importance,
so I have to say sorry, things to do,
places to go, people to see,
maybe next year
in Jerusalem.
