Where Is the next messiah?

Where have all

the messiahs gone,

where is the next one

bold enough to comfort

the masses reaching for something....


Someone to lead the way,

while all who lead presently

go in pointless directions,

as the world toils and starves

under complete lack of direction

from thier own and other leaders.


Who decides what stack

of dead babies gets piled up

in what third world country.

Is there not a man nor woman

among us to sacrifice all

creature comforts and step up

to the puninshing

position of messiah.


To take on the pious and greedy,

and wring money and sustenance

from thier sweaty palms with just words.



The Jewish all think

he's not yet come,

but one would wonder

why he didn't

come to save them

when 6 million

were extinguished

in the crematory

ovens and

the gas showers.



The Repuglican'ts all

believe it will be

a winking female goddess

who will become a seer

by reading the cheat sheets

hidden on her hand

and solve foriegn policy

simply by staring at Russia

from her backyard

in Alaska, with some

kind of super vision

when what she really needs

is perhaps mental supervision.



Considering that

she quit governing

there so that she

could rile the cult

baggers into reloading

and taking aim

at current leaders

and then runs around

like some sleazy

cult evangelist

collecting nothing

but big money

for her speech tours.


Sounds like a false

prophetess to me.


The pope who is supposed

to be closest to God,

is embroiled in a scandal

that claims he sent

known pedophiles

in the guise of priests

to other parrishes to alter

the alter boys there.


How can one have faith

in a faith whose highest leader

corrupted innocence by

pretending such a sin

would merely go away??


The Democrats have Obama

who is like a dark angel

no pun intended here

sweeping away the flaws

inflicted upon so

many for eight years

helping the poor

and the needy

and angering the

rich and greedy,

all in preparation

for a much more

heavenly kingdom when

the messiah does return.


So far he comes closest,

yet even as I write

ten thousand so called

Christian and caring

tea baggers are

wrinkling their acidic

faces into sneers...

at such a thought.

after tossing dollar bills at a

Parkinson riddled old man

who was only practicing his

right of free speech,

and then turning right around

to spit and hurl N----- words

at one specific group

of minority leaders

on the steps of the Capitol.


Where are the righteous oh. Lord?


Meanwhile all over the world

and in our own country

innocence dies, unfed,

uncared for, unneeded,

their cries are heard in the

sad wail of trains at midnight,

the soft coos of mourning doves,

and the mewling of abandoned

baby kittens in a winter storm.

Where is our next messiah

to pound what's real

right into so many

of this countries

rich, hypocritical.....

well fed guts.

"reading the cheat sheets"- Dude-MFB-you know I love you Man! We won't be picking out furniture together or anything but you know I love you Dude. Your words are so true, heavy, and yet yet light. Your words are starting my day off right! I'm celebrating the Rising Son by riding my bicycle- go figure. I'll be later later today to read this again- if I don't get that "magnesia" stuff. Milk o magnesia? Happy Easter Son! Later Bro!
