We'd Much Prefer
We would much prefer|
the easier to swallow Christianity,
talk of long haired angels with golden wings,
or just a strong belief in family.
We'd much prefer a nicely starched version,
someone to pat our hands
and make us think just how good we are over coffee and donuts and
Please, instead of worship,
can we have a concert instead,
a motivational speaker that will
placate us, instead of a Word
that will shake us.
We really do not like to be moved--
not our hands, lips, or hearts.
We'll have no talk of the dark stagnancy of our rotten souls,
how it takes the blood of Jesus
poured out over our
fine, expensive clothes
to ever get clean, no,
we cannot have such talk.
