Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light) (16 November / Westport New Zealand)
Beware Racist Ignorance Religiously Justified
with religious propaganda
of the most fundamentalist
half baked semi accurate
dangerous twisted bigoted...
unlearned kind lurks mad potential
for righteous self justified crimes...
racist ignorance religiously justified
such ignorance can really get
in a man's woman's face
be embarrassing when a cultural
rabid fool blown public disgrace...
can demean good people
who do not happen to profess
to or believe in the truth
of the true Christian faith...
'judge not least you yourself be judged'
is a wise policy to remind hard core extremists
get back to basics love covers a multiple of sins
against gentleness self-control there are no laws...
Poet's Notes about The Poem
Consider meditate upon Galatians 5: 23,1 Timothy 1: 9 'We also know that law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious; for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, ' and Acts 24: 25 'As Paul discoursed on righteousness, self-control and the judgment to come, Felix was afraid and said, 'That's enough for now! You may leave. When I find it convenient, I will send for you.'
