habakkuk

How long, O Lord must I call for help
While You send down the fire for the next time
(no more water, no more flood
all that rises here is blood)
You said You're doing something new
But you did this to the pagans and our
People in the ancient days, so
Is this really new or was the Teacher right?

(Wait, let me scratch that--
The earth will be filled with the glory
Of the Lord like water covers the deep,
Like the ocean rises to flood the plains.)

The righteous live by faith, but as
For the rest of us (that's why we're
Being burned by this Babylonian fire, right?)
We will live by surviving until
This desert fig tree revives and it
Rains all day with the bounty of new wine.
