This item just came to me while on my way to the library.
one person trying to outtalk another
as the situation worsens

as if lives were saved with verses
when they were faced with danger.

famine and diaspora  victims
aren't desiring lamentations

or words of encouragement to ease
the burden of the situation.

praying for more patience myself
and actually appreciating the church

outstanding missionary expertise
when the muncipality is rarely help.

yet being a citizen was always
more important than religious affiliation.

the freedom of religion amendment
always wrongly debated.

never meditatated on strongly enough
when the opposition was too evangelical.

and of course the American worker
was always trying to escape hell himself.
