You claim this is a Christian nation,
Which means a practice of love and merciful consideration.
Yet I cannot see proof of this enacted creed,
but something opposite, derisive,wholly obscene:
Where Jesus fed thousands who failed to bring their lunch,
You would starve millions – children, elderly, those who do work but can’t claim much.
Where Jesus healed the infirm at the first asking,
You deny the same any kind of care or compassion.
Where Jesus refused to judge, and preached the same in scripture,
You complain, place blame, testify that some are simply lazy creatures.
Where Jesus displayed contempt for the corrupt and hatred for injustice,
You embrace these heartily while spewing lies that shift the focus.
Where Jesus overturned tables and openly abhorred greed,
You worship Mammon with gusto, keep your money in piles behind doors of steel.
Where Jesus exemplified love and unity,
You damage with pure divisiveness, then flit around deceitfully.
Where Jesus accepted without question the stranger and the prisoner,
You deny them with malicious prejudice and disdainful reasoning.
Where Jesus might have built a prosperous City on a Hill,
You destroy democracy, sell out lady justice like a two-bit shill.
So, spare us the self-righteous narrative,
Throw off the coat of pretending.
At least own who and what you are –
A faction full of forked tongues, willing to ignore Jesus’ missionFor the sake of self entitlement and blatant power grabbing ascension.
