“The World Will Soon Enough Unite”
The world will soon enough unite, but not for love
Nor traffic, nor trading certitude for the sake of progress, peace
Or brotherhood or nonesuch religious truths; no, hatred does not cease
To suit egregious monthly recipes. The weekly treasure trove
Of convenient disaster placates crowds whose cry is doom
Whose reason deadens eager ears with bold bathetic lazzis. Audacity
In the nightly death toll seals a thinly clad tenacity
Of migrant militants whose creative zeal leaves little room
For doubt that they mean business. No. The whole
Will come into its own, the tribes at last lament as tears
Of mothers cease and nations lose their froth in fears
When peace revisits every valley as Prophets have foretold,
And all because it is His will that it be so.
This Great Peter will not willingly leave his Rome,
And while once again they part His robes
and desecrate the many-fractured Holy Mount,
slightly to the north the Word, Itself, has found Its Palindrome.
