what world is this?
i walk passed crosses
for sale in walmart
what must He think of this?
is His death for sale
to make a profit
in His blood
and allow 10%
for building
more buildings
where families
sleep in cars
down the block
don’t let them
even use the toilet
them–they who
are at your best
sniffed disdainfully

what world is this?
His life and death
$19.95 at the mall
or two for $34.99
do they not know
He charged not a penny
for love or touch
hugs or health?
why should i pay
mr walton
when He paid
for me?

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2.5 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. My most recent completed endeavor was finishing BA's in Religious Studies and American Studies. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
