14 May 2017 – What Do We Know?

In the palace of greed, down the hallways of power,
still sweet innocence hides as self-righteousness glowers.
How childlike God steps, open-hearted, still seeking,
for the ones who well-know that their own souls are reeking.

The hypocrites, scornful, well-dressed in their mockery.
They still judge their fellows no more than cracked crockery.
Yet God comes in silence, unseen by this thicket,
stepping over the line where His ‘righteous’ kids picket.
