Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

persecution

April 5, 2015

it’s a war on Easter, I tell ya
my plans to celebrate
the resurrection
of my Lord and Savior
nearly undone
at the local Walmart

no emmentaler
or gruyere
for our morning quiche
I had to settle for swiss

we like challah (holla!)
for Eucharist
yet only Italian remained
(the Romans conquer once again)

the cashier rebuked me
when the components for
our resurrection rolls
prematurely rolled across the scanner

all of it an obvious conspiracy
against this high holiday
and we humble servants
of Jesus
