Bethsaida Praise

inspired by Mark 8:22-26, the Blind Man, and the Explanation of the Blessed Theophylact

Go not back to thy village

but straight home instead

it is thy heavenly dwelling

and the Word hath commanded thou thither

Detour not, old soldier

for a world of liquid fire awaits thee

and thou shalt surely face

the wrath of the villagers there

Thy home becomes thy innermost room

a cell within His glory

a particle of His unoriginate light

a place of undistraction

flee there
