My Easter Poem


Buckle


Man on the cross on this Easter

Help us recognize that buckled 

Under pompous vulgar leaders

We excused immorality and disdain.


Man on the cross hidden by sashes 

To keep pious signing in praise

Not offended by blood from nails 

Or a crown of thorns.


Help us recall how You

Buckled under lashes of greed

Hung for us to stand strong 

Against borders to build nations.


Not for wigged powdered classes

But for freedom and equality

As You, Moses, Mohamed, Buddha

Rose to give strength and purpose.


For the time has come to end

Rules that topple our nation

And Liberty’s Flame

Under mire and stench.

Poem: Buckle

Buckle

Let us not buckle 
Under greed, vulgarity and pomposity
Oh God help us not believe 
You are on the side of rioters
Abusers, greed and self-servers
Help us stand strong 
And return our country
To the respect and glory 
That led our forefathers 
To leave homeland and ancestry
Cross the oceans
To build a nation 
Not for pomp and powdered classes
But for freedom and equality
Jesus, Moses, Mohamed and Buddha
Rise amongst our people
Give us strength and purpose
For the time has come
To end immorality, greed and vanity
Ruling and toppling our nation
From the top of Lady Liberty’s flame
Into mire and stench.
