Paradox - Poem by Buxton Shippy

Hard to sleep at night
Thinking about people I do not know
Interceding for their souls
People who do not believe
Yet whose lives say otherwise
Man like Rex Nettleford
How he lifts up the Rastaman
His work with the trade union
Teaching dance
Championing the cause of the down-trodden
And he is not a believer
I prayed for him again
This morning
I love him
'You have done much good
Unknowingly even God's pleasure
But you do not believe'
Saint Peter said
