John Steinbeck, he knew

how to speak of mice and men

 

their leaned-on plans

tossed by circumstance

into yesterday’s dustbin

 

he knew

 

a way could seem right to a man

but lead him nowhere

 

John Steinbeck, he didn’t know

how to speak of man and God

 

whose plans are firm

guiding all circumstance

into regeneration

 

he didn’t know

 

God would guide the steps of man

and lead him on to glory
