He Could Have

He could have come to rule the world,

he should have been a king.

He could have had all that he want,

but then what would it bring?

 

For he knew who he was and also

what the world would need.

Thus, he chose life a poor man’s son

who lived a life to bleed

 

upon the cross, between two thieves,

completely left alone.

‘Twould seem at glance a failure

How Heaven

It seems that life’s a limbo so if eternity is as well,

it’s hard to not conclude that every outcome will be hell.

 

For everything we do, in time fades into mundane dust.

The shiny steel of bliss today each next day gains more rust.

 

So how can Heaven hold its awe when eons pass like days?

For golden streets walked once too oft seem normal in their ways.

By The Well

Twas an ordinary scene on an ordinary day,

she an ordinary woman on her ordinary way.

Doing work of little consequence, she walked to Jacob’s Well.

Could she have known that someday all would know her tale?

 

For as she went to fill her pot a man she noticed there,

who were he any other Jew would not have stopped to care.

But he took time and bid her, “Dip the cup and give me ...

Time Wanes Thin

I never felt to push or shove

people toward the God of love.

It seemed that it was not my place,

“Just give them time and give them space”.

 

But then I came to understand,

when vision of a failing dam

appeared in revelation’s dream,

and as I dreamt I looked to see

a town that lay downstream below.

 

In dead of night, they did not know

that little time rema...

Labor In The Field

Some were hired at the break of day, a price to work the field.

Then others hired each passing hour and given the same deal.

 

And when the eve was drawing nigh the Master with good will

looked out and saw some in the streets who yet were waiting still.

 

So, then he went to them and asked, "Why have ye labored not?"

They answered, "We have not been hired though labour we have...

One Hair

I thought to change one hair tonight

from white to black, atop my head.

It seemed a try would be alright

while lying here upon my bed.

 

I called out to the powers that be

in all their forms amidst the sky,

but nothing changed at all for me

though I had given my best try.

 

I guess it’s human nature

to control the things at hand.

20th December and the lights are down

Expectance in abundance

As we look around

 

 

No tinsel or snow

No time to let go

Too tired and small

No feeling at all

 

 

They say he’ll be here soon enough

Yet time will soon have had enough

But we must be ready and not wither

The time is now, we must deliver

Slaughterhouse Red

Welcome to Britain, madam Ambassador for Genocide;

this carpet’s the latest fashion, Slaughterhouse Red.

Per Ardua ad Astra is how they died,

a diet of porky pies, what they were fed, 

“We will remember them”, cry solemn parrots, 

ad nauseam, per annum, dog-whistled, 

forgetting stick, they much prefer those carrots,

warmongering Lords want us protestors kettled;

How can you go meekly into the night 

When your world no longer gently goes around?

How can you go meekly into the night

When lives of who you cherish depend on you being wise?

Do you forget that in the beginning time started?

And yet this time has an end as so do you.

For if you have, forget not that all times have their moments besides one Holy one

Orate Fratres - Brothers, Let us Not Prey

Orate Fratres

Our raison d’être? to fulfil the Lord’s prophecy!

For we are the Tory Party at prayer;

Prayerfully, we arrange the country’s economy

So the wealth of our friends should never be impaired.

Jesus preached that: ‘the poor will always be with us’,

In fulfillment whereof, we his Kingdom prepare;

Let us implement with care, Austerity’s cuts,

For The Many-Not The Few

He was not crucified for me,

And not for him, nor her, nor thee,

That gentle Jesus meek and mild,

Once graced our world, unknowing child,

In manhood, he in wisdom grew,

Spoke for the many, not the few,

He chose to face injustice’s sword,

And hypocrites with his spoken word,

They, who place burdens on the poor,

Which they can not themselves endure,

To show empathy kindness forgiveness love and support
To teach of his suffering and lessons he taught
To walk in the light and all that do follow
Will not be immune to heartache or sorrow

Will not avoid suffering or be more blessed than others

Footsteps of the Magdalene

Are we not blessed to follow in Her footsteps,
The steps that stirred the dust in Galilee?
The feet that bring good news of Living Jesus,
The Light of lights arisen in you and me?
Her path is one of peace, of joy, of hope,
Breaching the walls of ignorance and fear,
And leads to the twilit Resurrection Garden,
See in Her embrace the Christ Light now appear; 
Magdalene, you show us this Grea...

No One Will Be There But Jesus

As friends solemnly told him to call
On them if ever he needed anything,
Only his pastor was candid enough
To tell him Jesus alone would stay.

And so it was as it had always been,
Walking alone on the beach, in town,
Along the highway, and in the upstairs
Hallway with no memory of being carried.

He supposed Jesus was a faithful companion,
But a bit quiet, and not much help when
A fla...

He's the sinner's Savior, He's God's Son

His goodness is limitless, His life is matchless

He's incomprehensible, He's indescribable

The grave couldn't hold Him, but he can hold you.

Modesty

relax,

now start breathing,

everything around is around for the same reason. 

Catastrophe, catastrophe its all the same feeling

i'm too old to move on, i'm too old to keep dreaming.

 

When to move on is to grow and to grow is not leaving,

in a promise land we grow, and speak of the same reason

we speak of heaven and hell like they're not the same demon.

I am Certain

In every city, I go.

In every country, I have been.

The Star and the Cross hope,

That he will be with us one day.

 

They call him by different names,

And claim him as theirs.

Both preaching similar faiths,

Both saying they are correct.

 

One says he is yet to come,

While the other hopes for him again.

One says he is the son of God,

While the other says, he wi...

Cause I can see your heart beating -

Beating out of your chest when I am there.

Fresh out Mary the mother.

Can’t let you give in, lose course, all in the name of ...

February 2016 Collage Poem

 

Jesus went for a rather long walk

Through magpie faeces to the slaughterhouse

In the stench of hate

Hanging with religious gangrene

Cushioned in silent landscapes

Immersed silently with broken hope

 

Put away like broken dishes

A poetic riddle told what it could be,

Branches creaking like hands clapping

To the answer given.

The iPhone of Beelzebub

I've stolen Beelzebub's iphone, now I know the numbers of his friends 

he's stuck for eternity without Facebook, oh how his hell never ends

I nicked St Peter's Kindle, now his words of wisdom are unsaid

Because I changed the password on his account, from Heaven swear words are sent

I hacked into Moses' iPad, now it's a tablet of stone

I wiped every file from the hard drive and chang...

What if the NHS was one of us?

No home, no job, just 12 good friends.

Betrayed by one who swore they never would.

Died too soon for pointless reasons.

What if God the NHS was one of us?
