“THE DIFFERENCE!?” a poem 23 June 2019 (SUNDAY)
The GOD of The Jews:*
“I’m-givin’-you-EVERYTHING! Enjoy-it, but-not-too-much!”
The GOD of Jesus:
“Enjoy IT – AND – Be in touch,
WITH LOVE! So, give-and-pray-for-ALL!
The GOD of The Jews:
“HEED MY CALL,
For-sacrifice, AND – Be-sure-to-make-me-smile!”
Of Jesus? “I’m SLEEPING!? all the-while!”
While The Disciples were on-board, fighting The Storm,
Jesus is-a snoozing! Trying to stay warm!
AND -The Apostle Paul? “Fight! The-GO[o]D-Fight!
Worship GOD! and GET THINGS ‘RIGHT!’ “
Well, doesn’t-that equal The Jewish GOD?
Mr. Paul, I shall-not ap-plaud,
YOUR efforts at organizing – The Early Church,
For The GOD-of-Modern-Christians – and – The-Jewish-SEARCH,
MUST!!! Search for God AND Find-a-Way!?
Can’t we – SLEEP? like-Jesus? and wait-for-another-day?
Well, now – I-don’t-suppose-BETTER! but-maybe-[a-bit]-more-in-dulgEnt!
“Hi! (pause) Are-any-here- in-di-GENT?
For I like the poor! the-somewhat-lazy! and dis-turbed!
PAUL! THE JEWS! and-strict, superstitious law –
- – and, generally, Christians, Moslems, you know, all the religions that SEEM TO promote Holy Wars (when they CAN)!
