Matthew 25:31-46, Poetry, Reign of Christ



what riches!
so many things we can buy,
dream about, 
wish to receive,

our cornucopia is overfull
(our landfill)
with iPads and Xboxes
programmable coffeemakers
refrigerators with TV screens
we can’t count them all

our shelter is overfull
with men and women
veterans, children
hungry, cold–
can we see them?

(We’re a week ahead of the lectionary, doing the sheep and the goats this Sunday. Thinking of using this on the bulletin cover. What think you?)
