‘Tis The Season

‘Tis the Season for the annual delousing
So the poor and the pitiful can be paraded
In a perpetual state of transitional housing
While Charities misappropriate funds donated
Commercializing the suffering of the second-rated

An Excerpt from Crossing Main by T J Therien

“What happens when community isn’t what it’s supposed to be? You get the world we have today. Black and white ideology, with blinders on we fail to see the colors because of the spectrum of grey. So wrapped up in our vanity, self-absorbed we let society erode, decay and fall into disarray. Moths feed off the fabric. We build walls, but not of straw, stick or brick, designed to keep the wolf at bay, but it’s only our humanity we keep away. What happens when community isn’t what it’s supposed to be? You get the world we have today.”

Human Limitations

Are we all that

Enlightened, educated

Cultured and sophisticated?

 

We have the resources and abilities

To cure many of the World’s infirmities

But we don’t

Because there’s no money in it

That is why we are not civilized

And that is why we are a failed species

 

Ask yourself again

Are we all that

Enlightened, educated

Cultured and sophisticated?

A Warning to Christians

God is not a love struck teen;

“Sorry Big Guy,” just isn’t going to cut it

Forgiveness is earned not by asking

But by demonstrating

And living your life

In accordance to the teachings of Christ

By trying to live by his example

Anything else is hypocrisy

And I believe the bible has a few choice words for hypocrites.

 

*Note I am not religious, but I do live my life in accordance to the basic principles of most major religions which is more than I can say for a lot of people that claim to be devout.
