A Persuasive Lady

Mark 7:24-30


It’s the kind of thing that Sarah would have said

That line about the housedogs and the scraps

The Syrophoenician woman

Desperate for her daughter

Would take whatever scraps the master gave


My mother’s sister Sarah

The youngest of her clan

Was given the gift of speech

Better than any man

She was full of conversation

Entertainment too

Could have been a politician

And said a thing or two


She always gave great welcome

And filled the day with talk

Knowledgeable on subjects

And funny with the joke

She listened and she learned

Her opinion then gave out

God bless my aunty Sarah

We’ll meet again no doubt
