Reap the Whirlwind

Poesy plus Polemics

"Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse" Illustration by Patrick Wyett From “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse”
Illustration by Patrick Wyett

there are days in this coarsened
inflammable world
so intensely repugnant
emotions collide
cracking senseless and splintered
their dagger points
raining down violence
stabbing through altarcloths
dressed for devotion
they cut into Nazarene olivewood
peace bleeding openly
veins of gold vengeance
throb molten beneath
scapes of conscience
until thy erupt hot with hatred
for even the slightest forgiveness
or turn-the-cheek teaching
consumed by fierce need
to blast sand into glass
punish terror endured
with retaliant bloodshed
entrapping humanity’s
nationless flesh with
its rag and bone dogma
in guilt-engaged gears
turning cycles of circular justice
