These Things Are Good

The things most worth doing
are things anyone can
and everyone should
do. I think
these things are good.
I want to ask the monk with the hood,
the one stacking wood.
Humble, private, easy
and really hard.
Like trying to make a meal
your kids will eat,
only of Swiss chard.
So I am always thanking
my daughter for her baking,
but tonight I’m thankin
God for bacon.
