hippo at the circus

hippo stands and sits
unnaturally performing
stripes on his skin
hippo stands and sits
splashing water and mud
bellowing with joy
man stands and sits
checking off to-do lists
worn and weary
man stands and sits
splashed with water and oil
cleansed and renewed

8For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God— 9 not the result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are what he has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life.  Ephesians 2:8-10

Inspired by the Lenten Journey reading of Ephesians 2:1-10
