SUNDRY SAVIORS
(1/5/18)

Moses

Buddha

Jesus

Mohammed

ad nauseam

humans
have always
required
a rescuer

but without
a glowing face
speaking to us
we seem incapable
of realizing
our deliverance

we have been
told
the same
things

in the
same ways

again

again

without
any lasting
efficacious
result

the majority
seem incapable
of removing self
by themselves

someone
important
usually
has to die
first
