I So Loved the Wolf

…for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. Galatians 3:27

Dead in the dark wood,
trapped in the long night,
the wolf would eat wolf
with rules to feed right!

The wolf knows not why,
just this must be done:
I so loved the wolf,
I came down as one.

Dressed just as the wolf,
plunged in the dark wood
to die as the lamb
pure blood for a hood.

That the wolf might rise
by blood of the lamb
and leave the dark wood
dressed just as I am.
