Paradise lies
belongs to us all, and
If He were alive
He’d be in the slums,

the projects, wandering
in the food deserts of the world
stepping foot in mega churches
only to tell everyone in them
how full of *it
they are

he’d be outlawed, named
a disturber of the peace
just as
he was then

Now, where
Corporate rule is the new Caesar
with greater reach than Augustus dared to dream.
