God Is An Anarchist

god is an anarchist

the second coming
was not unlike the first
feeding the hungry
sheltering the homeless
healing the sick
washing the feet of prostitutes
talking about love

2000 years to get it right
instead they inverted it
made jesus a toll booth
operator in heaven
i suppose
the message got
lost in translation
somewhere along the line

when they asked him
about his politic
he answered
god is an anarchist
and that alone was enough
they crucified him
on a wheel with an “A” in it
as a punishment
to all our future
crimes against the state

but it was too late
his selfless example
got to even
the most cynical among us
and we rioted in the streets
going toe to toe with the cops
as they kept a perimeter
around his crucifixion

we broke the line
of cops around him
and with his last breath
he whispered
that his death
would be worthwhile
if we should go
make heaven on earth
and so we did
