And They’ve Their Pillars Of It (Bussokusekika)

Edwin Tanguma 1966 (CA)

And They’ve Their Pillars Of It   (Bussokusekika)

Keep my prize Father
Mankind is not deserving
I don’t want to share
New Jerusalem with them
They have built their perfect world
And they’ve their pillars of it

About this poem

I am having problems getting to sleep tonight and this one popped into my head…Trauma in one’s past can haunt a person their entire life…I had to relieve a very haunting one yesterday and I don’t know how long it will take me to get over it…I had problems falling asleep Monday night due to the thought of my appointment yesterday…Oh well…Thus is life…MST Ptsd sucks… As IF there really is a New Jerusalem and such…I guess that mankind truly believes that this utopia they have created really is the New Jerusalem mentioned in the Holy Bible…
