The bodies fall

After Hebrews 3:16-19

Provoking wrath, they

wander forty years.

Abandoning faith, they

live in the wilderness,

forty years, depending

each day on food and

sustenance. They,

this generation, have

to be taught faith. As

they learn, as they

wander, their bodies

grow old, their bodies

fail, their bodies

fall in the wilderness.
