Giving the Finger

One finger salutes -
road rage...
drives animosity

One finger draws
rigid rules...
muses weep

One finger pounds
on a chest...
others retreat

One finger wags -
shame, shame...
souls wither

One finger points 
to the door...
hearts exit

One finger pushes
a button...
missiles end the world

One finger beckons -
follow me...
dies on a cross
