Water and Oil

Into this world

of rage and fury,

of broken hearts and spirits,

of deep angers and raw loneliness,

he came,

Speaking

mercy and grace,

faith and forgiveness,

courage and compassion,

of rain sent upon the just

and the unjust.

He made a scourge

of twisted braids,

wrecked the tables

of the thieves whose den

defiled the courts of God,

who preyed upon the praying.

He called

the children,

walked among lepers,

dined with whores and traitors,

smiled at adulteresses

and told them all

to quit sinning.

Mercy and righteousness

joined together

in such an un-political way,

which lesson

both Democrats and Republicans

need to learn today.

Along with the rest of us.
