Not in His Name

The stupid Christians exile Jesu Cristo
because he’s strange-named, refugee, and Jewish
or was when he preached love, God’s rule, and peace though
they won’t admit to that. They go all shrewish
at the idea he’d want bigotry to cease. No
chance they’d follow him. His eyes weren’t blueish.

Wise Christians, there are many, hide in shame
at the evils that the dumb do ‘in His name’.

  1. An excellent poem here, but so sad that the new year begins with more of the same madness that covered the headlines in the old year. Let’s hope that mankind will rise to its better nature soon. Happy New Year, Alan. I hope to see many wonderful poems from you in 2016.
