Beautiful Danger - Poor Little Rich Boy
by Brian Doerksen

Album: Prodigal God


THE YOUNGER SON
My Beautiful Danger

THE YOUNG WOMAN My Canaan Prince

THE YOUNGER SON Where's home?

THE YOUNG WOMAN Every place and no place
Where there's something to be gained, we go

THE YOUNGER SON When
there's something to be lost?

THE YOUNG WOMAN We fly

THE YOUNGER SON Who's we?

THE YOUNG WOMAN The poets
like to say
All roads lead to Rome
But my uncle likes to add, in his brutal Roman way
"First you must pay me the toll"

THE YOUNGER SON
(Spoken) I see
I've been known to fly myself

THE YOUNG WOMAN
Did you fly from home?

THE YOUNGER SON
Well, yes

THE YOUNG WOMAN
I see you've not lost much along the way

THE YOUNGER SON
You'd be surprised

THE YOUNG WOMAN
How much did you have when you left your father's house?

THE YOUNGER SON
(Spoken) You'd be surprised
You can let your uncle know
I am free from his constraints
If I seek a face to face with Caesar's Mighty Self
There's no stopping me
There's no topping me
I can do anything

THE YOUNG WOMAN
Anything?

THE YOUNGER SON
Well, many things

THE YOUNG WOMAN
(Spoken) For your sake, I'll keep that to myself

THE YOUNGER SON
And where is your uncle today?

THE YOUNG WOMAN
Look close
And you will see him today
As the raiders overpower
And you cower from the soldiers
And the quaking beggars leech upon your soul
You can feel him reach around you
You can tremble in his wake
You can know your life is not your own for long

THE YOUNGER SON
Then why do his bidding?

THE YOUNG WOMAN
Few ask that question

THE YOUNGER SON
Why do his bidding?

THE YOUNG WOMAN
Few have the freedom you flaunt
Little rich boy

THE YOUNGER SON
(Spoken) Little rich boy?!

THE YOUNG WOMAN
Dear little rich boy (Spoken) I've said too much

THE YOUNGER SON
The truth is never too much to say
I'll be truthful in kind
I have come to the end of my freedom, as you call it
Soon I will have nothing left

THE YOUNG WOMAN
Poor little rich boy
So we may be losing you, our best customer

THE YOUNGER SON
(Spoken) Customer?

THE YOUNG WOMAN
We should fly

THE YOUNGER SON
There is something else to lose right now

THE YOUNG WOMAN
(Spoken) I don't understand

THE YOUNGER SON
Lose me as a customer, yes
But don't lose me as a friend
Little rich boys can grow up to be wiser, if poorer, young men

THE YOUNG WOMAN
You are full of yourself

THE YOUNGER SON
(Spoken) I am

THE YOUNG WOMAN
I am empty
