Oh the offers

Offers come continually. What will we say this time?

Oh the offers come:
The conference will cost less
If only I will do more:
Wake up earlier
Than I ever do,
Organize the materials,
Introduce the speaker,
Be eternally present.

Oh the offers come:
Will I consider
Interim ministry again?

Oh the offers:
There is a tiny kitten
A girl,
I understand all calicoes
Are girls.
There is a tiny kitten
Waiting in Ohio,
A tiny catbox,
Kitten-size food dishes
Already in the car.
The old cat,
Sound asleep
In one of his many cat beds,
Has no idea.
No idea whatsoever.
