Our Sins! - Poem by Eric Cockrell

Jesus died for our sins
in Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan....
Judas ran for office,

got re-elected....
and they cut down whole forests
to make more crosses!

Christian got a purple heart,
came home jobless and homeless.
but no fear, no tears,

the next front will be here!
salvation wrapped in oppression!
