Primitive religion is not believed, it is danced!

Arthur Darby Nock

Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
And only he who sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.

another day
another death
another child lost
while voices cry
“guns don’t kill people, people do”

another day
another death
another person
slips from life
unable to afford the care that might give them life
while people fight for the system that killed them

another day
another death as a homeless person
hungry and alone
simply fails to wake up
while building managers put spikes on the ground to deny them shelter

another day
where somewhere a person with amazing wealth
makes more in a day, than another makes in a year
and complains

another day
where somewhere a politician
claims God gave them the victory
while promoting a policy of hate and exclusion

somewhere along the line
our heads have gotten disconnected
with our souls

oh Sacred One
save us from
