God Is On Sabbatical Leave - Poem by dedy hidayat

God is on sabbatical leave

Friends, here is the situation:
The Kings and all their ministers are gone for a box office love movie. Our elected noble and wise lawmakers go on comparative studies abroad, comparing their books of laws and salaries.
Our revolutionary middle class arguing for a revolution, sipping Starbuck's coffee, then races to malls for shopping spree
.... and God is on sabbatical leave
... and they are all leave us home alone.
Yes, we are all alone when those market worshipers sneak in through our backdoor, grining, laughing, like a gang of ghosts
... and in no time unveiled faces of poverty appear all around the house
... and with a single Midas touch, they turned us into commodities to be sold in a market we never made. (dedy n. hidayat - March 14,2008)
