Poem based on John 4:5-42


let me feel the hate
If I could just get in a word
I could nail him
maybe even to a cross
To relish the verbal jab
the well timed cut
the jousting and positioning
ready for the kill
I use the phrase I know invokes
deep deep pain
the joy of the battle
I perceive there is no battle
I’m dancing around here like a fool
waving my sword in the air
and no battle.
And Jesus said:
The time is coming when you will
worship neither here or there
when your petty differences matter no more
and you will worship in Spirit
the childishness of our battles is called
to an end.
We are called in for supper
on bread and wine
Body and Blood

forgiveness and love
