God's Distress: A Poem for Easter

Ere the conception of man
When the whole was void and formless
And prevailing upon all was darkness
When Divine spirits moved upon shoreless waters
All was sullen, yet serene, still saintly
God knew more peace
Even in His three-piece

Ere the first insubordination
Whence the first couple fancied the maker’s foe
And received from his offer, the fruit, the forbidden
Still by their offspring
The first butchery of man by man
Ere the incidence of all these
God knew more peace

Thence forward
Given man’s consistent insubordination
And the estrangement
Of the divine from man, His beloved
God has known less peace
Since man began to prefer a fellow’s rocky buttocks
Even to maidens’ bosoms
God has known less peace
For uncontently,he watched how hapless
Men were in despicable conditions
Like strangers in strange lands
Unguarded, unguided
With no hope to help
God’s distress has got no less
No less than men’s unableness
To aid themselves

Hence it became unnecessary
To hold onto the only begotten
For certain it had gotten
That till the betrayal with the kiss
God was to know less peace
But today, God
Even men, have come to know peace
Thanks to that betrayal with the kiss
