Shabbat Tryptich 2

I offered the only offering that I have to bring
I offered my voice,not
as a timely man, his-is-good-as-any-man's voice,
a not as good as a woman's voice
but a voice
brings tears to lovers at the huppah,
turns hearts inward in due season
upward just on rime
cut through steel to carry messages,
cut steel hearts to carry pain
a voice that honors the words it shapes
but the offer was not accepted
but the offering was not accepted
Cain, you got a bad rap
your offering was not accepted,
though you brought your best,
but though you offered the fattest lambs
you sacrifice was not accepted.
Our sacrifice was not accepted
