When that many can justify
watching another human
suffer, agonize, waste,

for the sake of a game


come preach to me.

Until then

Do not talk to me of oneness
and worldliness.

Do not invite me to church,
speak to me of Buddha,
greet me with Shalom.


Now I understand
the anger, the disgust
in the upturned
money tables.

It's not that you did
what you did,
but you made it
more important than
your professed beliefs.

For the one who told me
to grow up,

Get some religion.
