Good Friday

“Western Civilization and Christianity” by León Ferrar

This is America 
The State 
The Empire
Elected rulers vulgar or smooth
The holy dove still falls to the ground 
As the olive branch withers
Insouciance to love
As the hypocrite and Pharisee look for signs 
Jonah slips into a whale’s belly
Not wanting forgiveness for Nineveh 
Have we forgotten 
Who is without sin must cast the first stone
Judas resisting forgiveness 
Kissing love on the cheek
This is America
