I see those priests,
Clergy of every ilk,
Bowing their heads before stones,
Golden saints and bathomet statues,
Friends that don’t talk back,

They’re speaking in tongues,
Evoking this name or that,
Vocalised necromancy,
Who’s to say if their prayers are heeded,
The idols don’t respond,

After all,
How could they?
What is idolatry,
But talking to ghosts?

  1. Wow worship is indeed personal. A poignant piece, my friend.

    Thought provoking post!

    God isn’t restricted to man made images and for that I am thankful. His answers sometimes come in different ways than I expect or want…but I have discovered sometimes it is very dependent on just what/how I am asking…
