So Sayeth The Lord
(8/27/2021)


Brother Bollocks’
listens
to another
world leader

another
president

invoking
scripture

insinuating
divine guidance

in another
military
undertaking

undertakers
justifying
their actions

with words
written
millennia ago

texts intended
for primarily
pacific
purposes

nonetheless
written by
spiritual
warmongers

life
being a battle
for our
souls

Brother Bollocks
tends to concentrate
upon the more
prosaic
daily fights

where no
deaths
are involved

and no
speeches
required
