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
