Teardrops slowly trickle down my face,
As I sit alone in this beautiful place.
Staring down at my servants beneath me,
at a world that evolved, how could this be.

More hatred than love does live,
These selfish beings I had to forgive.
Slowly but surely they had eroded my trust,
With deceit and greed and their passion for lust.

Don’t they know that I witness their actions every day,
With fewer and fewer beginning to pray.
They offer no honour or service at all,
And I feel in my mind my spirit does fall.

I look to my father for an offer of belief,
His face so solemn and riddled in grief.
Forgive them for they know not what they do,
For they are mere mortals unlike me and you.

Shall we punish them for behaving this way,
No, No dear Son please allow them to play away.
For one day we will meet them,
And only then will they think again.

With their paradigms shifted, they’ll shed their tears,
And for their very own siblings they’ll have the fears
In that world and all kingdom come,
I promise you, Justice will be done.

Uncanny. Sounds like Noel Coward speaking from the grave, the other side.

Hi Eric ( with apologies to Steve)

Compared to my earlier visit of 10 years back this time around the CoE seems chastened . Perhaps by all the flak its been getting and even more ominously because it perceives a loomin existential threat.

The last time around I'd regularly attend the Sunday evensong at St.James' Paddington. After each such service the revulsion the Dean , a white Englishman , felt at being forced to shake my hand was palpable . Believe you me I was not being hypersensitive.

This time around at the very same church and at several others in central London the white vicars made it a special point to go out of their way to talk to me .

The sole exceptions though, were St. Paul's ( used to fending off us eastern hordes anyway ) ,and a chapel on the Strand, where one of the middle aged laity (not even the vicar mind you ) very sniffily asked me to remove my cap.

Clearly a 'pommie' used to putting us 'unwashed natives' very firmly in our place.

Yet ,incredibly enough, 'snogging' is perfectly acceptable during High Mass - while caps have to be doffed.

If this isn't an utter travesty of religious solemnity - what is ,i ask you .

Elevator to Heaven
Regrettable, but true in some quarters I'm sure.

Nothing escapes the Lord...but he will have the final say, and all the naysayers will be begging for his blessing! It's's usually the "haves" who live this way. But once they become one of the "have nots", they change their tune pretty quick.

I live by the adage of "Don't judge me, until you have walked in my shoes." We never know when we ourselves will become one of the "have nots", but in this climate, we are about to find out!.

Hope I meet you on the elevator to Heaven, my friend.

Well said Bea
May the lord look favorably on ye! Well writen lament - you sound like a prophet. the Apostle Paul said I know what to do I just can't do it. We poor humans just keep doing what humans do. From those that left Egypt to David to the Pharises. the minute we think we have tis old world figured out we fall back into missing the mark. The arrogance is to ever think we have reached that perfect place that stands us next to God. Thanks for a good read. And God forgive us that we never quite reach that bar He has set.
