Poem

the whisper of one 

drowns out the screams of the others

the blood of the thousands

forsaken for the tear of a brother

economies collapse

while africa is still starving

yet all is quiet about the latter

alarming

the orphan, the widow

the forgotten two

while America pays

to see who dates who

the church, the building

not satisfied with pews

millions of dollars spent

to entertain you

you burn with passion

about the latest sports game

but when Jesus is spoken

you all a sudden are tame

is this what life is all about?

the excess, the comfort

the easiest route?

damned is your pride

your selfish gain

who are you

to impose reign?
