A lousy mystic
Who thinks that seeking
To feel God’s presence
Is a bit too much
About me,
A bit egotistic. 

Who thinks he should just
Go about the business of
Doing justice,
Loving mercy,
And walking humbly with his God. 

And if one day he is
Spontaneously overwhelmed
With a sense of God’s presence,
That would be great,
That would be lagniappe.
