It Won'T Be Long... - Poem by RIC BASTASA

i was educated so well
in an expensive and
exclusive university for
the rich,

my training is not to be
perhaps with my skill
i am more
designed to defraud
other people who dwell
in their
sacred ignorance

but i will not be doing
i am excited how to feel
being swindled
by the lesser of my kind

i pretend i am one of those
and i allow myself to be defrauded
by those i have long wanted
to serve

it is not a nice feeling
but i must experience it to feel
how is it to be
one of those
who are struggling to live
who are shying away from the pains
inflicted by

i like to feel what Jesus
felt when he was crucified
when he was spit upon
when he was humiliated and

i just want to be a christian.

Do not worry, It won't be long.
