When did life become an ongoing production complete with costumes and props
When did church become a worship “experience” instead of a community for relationships and a place to rest from the war
When did education become all about the presentation or the test to show off all you crammed into your head
Only to drop it out in relief when you are allowed to take a breath
Everyones hustling, busting their butts, to get to the next event
We even pay money to get t-shirt’s to show that we run for fun
We wear stacks of plastic bracelets to promote each cause
The show goes on and on and on
It’s like we are always auditioning for the next step up
Being evaluated to see if we can make the cut
Every meal, every visit to the gym, every trip to a church building
If your not going vertical, or if you are content, someone is gonna be looking to knock you off, take your market share
Keep your game up, don’t leave the stage
Or somebody’s right there to take your place
Leave you on the outside, factionless, underpaid
