God Needs No Houses Poem by Terence G. Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)


converts are gathered
stage crowd whipped
into states of religious

frenzy with feed fed regular
daily indoctrination meetings
new converts will be ready

to hand over gold
valuables precious savings
life savings houses

to esteemed cult leaders
remarkably converts
do not perceive God

does not need gold
silver gems new temples
churches mosques

God needs nothing
God needs no house
and yet God

under various names
owns millions of houses
prestige luxury houses

esteemed leaders
at pinnacle need
glorious edifications

to prove worshippers
are worthy of their God
while destitute homeless

who need shelter receive no homes?
