On incremental change

Flying donkey image courtesy of the Mary Tyler Moore show. I don't remember who said it, but I do remember it was in relation to Ted, the rather buffoonish newscaster.

Someone behaves
In a completely uncharacteristic way.
For a split second
We believe
He has changed,
She has changed
May we note the behavior
Paint rings around it,
See the beginning
Of the Kingdom Come.
For a split second
May we see
The Second Coming
And give thanks.

When a donkey flies
We don’t blame him
For not staying in the air
Very long.

May we realize
We are all donkeys.
