My Easter Poem

Buckle

Man on the cross on this Easter
Help us recognize that buckled
Under pompous vulgar leaders
We excused immorality and disdain.

Man on the cross hidden by sashes
To keep pious signing in praise
Not offended by blood from nails
Or a crown of thorns.

Help us recall how You
Buckled under lashes of greed
Hung for us to stand strong
Against borders to build nations.

Not for wigged powdered classes
But for freedom and equality
As You, Moses, Mohamed, Buddha
Rose to give strength and purpose.

For the time has come to end
Rules that topple our nation
And Liberty’s Flame
Under mire and stench.
