Hello Pharisee!


Hello Pharisee!
The day is perfect and so glamorous
with a calling symphony!
From a distance,
the yellow fields plead attention
singing in one melody
“A time to reap, a time to devour,
and a time to weep! ”


Now the Altar waits like a king
Like a gourmet impatiently greeting
“Hello Pharisee, what do you have for me?
You will savor the bills in the gathering! ”


And lo! This is it!
I hear you tremble in fast beats!
As you set one foot-in
And one foot outside the temple
Compromise!
A parody at the King’s court,
Shame, disgust!


We'll see each other come before the throne
and I say
“Hello Pharisee!
The day is perfect for you and me.
We’re both on our knees
As the Altar asks offering
You market with your dressed beauty
Brood of vipers! Why can’t you see?
You speak and love differently! '






“Hello Pharisee! ”
The Judge will call
“Hell you, Pharisee! ”
The verdict!

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
