You Jonah

And Jonah stalked
to his shaded seat
and waited for God
to come around
to his way of thinking.
And God is still waiting for a host of Jonahs
in their comfortable houses
to come around
to His way of loving.

–Thomas Carlisle
from “You Jonah”
as quoted by Johannes Verkuyl
(Perspectives Reader p.33)
