(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in ‘even’ sticking out [but not too sore], as God knows I am most definitely one of the odd men out”)
You’re odd man out when the first is the last.
This is vital for those not of the norm.
“The world doesn’t get me!” Good! You “broad”cast
your uniqueness “far and wide.” Don’t conform!
I’m odd man out when first, last, and middle.
Whomever, I stick out like a sore thumb.
Good! I won’t remedy the world’s riddle:
“Born below.” NO! Above is where I’m from.
Jesus was “odd” man out. He, Heaven made.
He spoke of “even” things: Numbers Above
brought down to solve equations below. Grade
of A+. The answer? He healed it! LOVE!
God’s Sonnet today: Let us love. Devout
is Jesus who loves “even” odd men out.
