Fulmination

(Poetry Scales 7)
see Proverbs 16

Don’t kid yourself.
Your petty, dogmatic hatred against people
Is nothing like Jesus and
His righteous anger against steeples.

God didn’t sanctify your sin
He justified your person,
Not your opinions, politics, shade of skin,
Language, culture, country, or sermons.

“He was always so quiet, kept to himself.”
Yet a thunderous storm brewed inside his head.
He didn’t go postal, but found a likeminded crowd,
Formed an institution and erected a cross instead.

Building a world that is moral in your own eyes
While cursing your ignored sin reflected in others’
Is no campaign against what is wrong in the world,
Just a contribution to the sum of all evil.
