Jesus Wept - Poem by James B. Earley

Fiscal Conservatism
Blatantly destroying
Social consciousness
While piously drawing

Parallels of righteousness
To its Christian views..
As the mantra of Christ
..Is hypocritically abused
Got Jesus in a quandary
...Scratching his head
Questioning the wisdom
Of rising from the dead

...And wondering aloud
'Ought I simply adjourn
Whose idea....after all
..That I should ever return'

Author's Note:
"What an ironic tragedy that an affluent, "Christian" minority in the world continues to hoard its wealth while hundreds of millions of people hover on the edge of starvation! "
― Ronald J. Sider, Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger
