My friends let me down

and they vandalised the house.

I went through the roof –

deus ex machina (not).

Still, theatrical.

Talk about vertiginous!

I felt suspended,

like those spies in Jericho

whom Rahab rescued.

Well, I was a stretcher case,

until Joshua –

this one – spoke to me.

I do believe that

He could make the sun stand still.

(My friends will repair the roof.)
