Grandeur

To think those Roman hands that drove the spear
within the ribs of Jesus, wield the rod
of Christendom, is positively queer.
The sons of tyrant's thugs, now pimp for God
and plot, within their Vatican to sell
the path of Heaven's purity to those
demented by their fantasies of Hell.
True pillagers, caught red hand in the pose.
"The kingdom is within...", you would not know,
to see the priceless art and gleaming gold
behind those mighty walls where human woe
does not intrude, as all doors are patrolled.
Transcendent sight, that floods the blood with light
is not dished here, through rapture. writ nor rite.
