(Meditation on psalm 10)
God had a ringside throne,
and watched the poor man get a payday loan
on his unemployment check.1
Why didn’t God go berserk
when He heard
The head of Goldman Sachs’ smirk
that his style of banking was God’s work.2
His evil schemes are too good to derail.
He ain’t going to jail.
The excuse is
“I’m too big to fail.”3
Why does this community
act like they have absolute immunity?
Oh Lord, when are you gonna inflict some pain?
Or least pay attention when we complain?
Oh Lord, you take care of orphans and the oppressed
the hungry and the undressed
Strike down the evil
that has caused this economic upheaval.
