Christ Said


Christ said: 'Give it all away
and follow Me.'
They even say
that's what he said
and praise it,
get their children spiritually fed
(and then erase it.)

'If the spirit calls you, Go! '
they say,
and, as you're on your way,
'Hey!
It's only a metaphor you know!
Come back!
Let's talk some more.
You'll have to pack.
But come back.
And shut the door.'

The door, yes, door,
any door on any floor
in any city anywhere.
Go out now.
It doesn't matter how you look.
Go now.
Put down the book
slip quickly out.
Ignore the shout,
don't look back.

Still there.
