are we silent saints or sinners,
bodies at rest or spirits sunk by
feet of clay?

we revel in neat procession,
fling ourselves with stoic pride into
fiery fray.

slow, stately gait and tamed tongues
hide not hedonistic hearts,
saints but sinners
in flimsy disguise.

fools dancing now in darkened streets
perform ritual of grace,
pour steadfast love,
pray for sin's demise.

Night gives way to innocent dawn,
naked in her holiness,
surrenders, peers
through experienced eyes.

Politics, Poetry and Love in the Obama Age by Lonnie Hicks

This is a large volume of poetry (560 pps) which seeks to capture the spirit and issues ordinary individuals (myself included) struggle with here at the on-set of the Obama Age.
