Heaven's Terms for Ending the Lethal Punch-and-Judy Show

by William David Spencer | October 30, 2011

I

CREATOR/CONQUEROR/COMFORTER

 

II

One God—when no one else—sufficient.

One Love, created us, proficient.

Our wills, returning love, deficient.

One Sacrifice applied, efficient.

 

III

The Voice spoke to conceive,

not a replica, a reflection,

a moon to the sun of affection,

mirroring the source of election: the only Fountainhead.

 

The Word came to reprieve,

with an amnesty with proviso,

the news on its combat radio:

enfleshing in our own barrio is heaven’s bold beachhead.

 

The Nurse healed to relieve

the wounds of warring wills of lovers

to unify sisters and brothers,

loving equally God and others: peace terms of the Godhead.
