In The Sign Of The Cross


One genuflects the mind upon inner reflections

Kneeling inside prayers searching the core of faith

In personal interaction of individual circumspection

That keeps making the sign in a Cross faithfulness.


Katrina America in Country Club political religions

Using cutting edge jesuS for monetary green churches

Tanning beliefs sharing golden idol wardrobe religious

Brand names in Scarlet Letter preaching pew perches.


That a real Jesus image cannot have this political face

That promotes wealth and its Inquisition intimidation

That reign down with Right Wing storm trooper faces,

Biblical scaled justice turned to a Military Tribunal nation.


Sign of the Red Cross in loving neighbor compassion 

Homeless Salvation Army and soup kitchen thank you.

Making the sign of the cross with civilian care passion

Of Christmas presence in a smiling human heart’s hue.


In the sign of the Cross, one lives the American dream poetry

From a core faith of De-termination after termination

That one must walk with God’s given gifts of fulfillment poems

To enlightened the world of its depressive hate abominations.


That each living thing is blessed with God’s appreciation

That all Churches must end preying on their congregations

From infancy to youth to old age dementia molestations

Of souls, and processions, or wealth in spiritual cannibalization.


Leaving a loving living shell with lifetime’s hell hole hatred scar

That once abused or tortured in verbal and/or physical grave marks

That are implanted memories of others that simmers there and chars,

Where for a lifetime they seek salvation in the Sign of the Cross arks.


In the Sign of the Cross Bless You, and your Family.
