The courtroom was tilted,
both its floor and its ceiling.
Looking from afar
you would think it was about to fall.
It was said that once when the judge
had shaken God’s throne with his verdict
the Lord tilted its carpet.
Inside, people staggered and slept tilted.
They ate tilted and prayed tilted.
So they could remember how easy it is
to stay “tilted” for a lifetime!
