The Greater Moses

The Greater Moses

"(3)If, now, the good news we declare is in fact veiled, it is veiled among those who are perishing, (4) among whom the god of this system of things has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, that the illumination of the glorious good news about the Christ, who is the image of God, might not shine through."
(2 Corinthians 4:3,4)

What meanders as a mystery
also moonlights as a means to an end
A monolithic myth clothed in a false credibility
                                                                             That claims the wisdom of Solomon
But beware
What crown the confounded;
misguided have worshiped
To be fair?
Their hopes? Ill founded
Leaves true worshipers who,
eager to teach are none the less astounded;
knowing this crown appropriately rest elsewhere
What heralding pleadings of come!
Trumpet from false voice and placating rock masses
Content to amass material assets
Their rock masses simply made of paper mache boulders
Though the Devil ma’care
That their champion rest not in the Greater Moses
but on less capable and sinister shoulders

Night Shade Harmony

Hind sight is 20/20.
Why should I spend a great deal of time reHASHING the
HAPPEN stance
and HARSHness we called a lover’s dalliance
Fights over HONESTY
Resentment ruled the roost and hence
Forgiveness was offered without any AMNESTY
Strained finance
Refusals to adjust,
We needed real professional assistance
But help never came and we didn’t seek it in a measure
That honored the depth of our feelings
And the arguments continued with persistence
We refused to talk
When the other DEMANDED?
We balked
If I were the one REPRIMANDED?
I walked
When I tried to leave you pleaded
Gripped my pant leg wet with tears; the door blocked
It was awful
I thought I lost respect for you based on your behavior
Never in a million years
I think back on how much you meant to me and I savor
The secret sounds of twilight conversations at dawn
The nightshade HARMONY
The way we fit so perfectly together in love and lust
No one moved me and soothed me like you, TRUST ME
And I am not sure anyone ever will
