Poem To Secular Jesus

Absurd redemption of humanity -
how can I write
or mouth a ritual creed
which brings to life
your crass stupidity.

This problemed world provides
no sanctuary. The Word
screams out for light; a sacrifice

of dreams and power -

a hapless Saviour snared
by well-intentioned tomes.

Bookloads of words
can never penetrate
reality -

the God-shaped question
yearns
for my reply. No theory

supplies the key
to one who shuns
inherited divinity.

No core of righteousness
resides within -
the journey outwards
is where truth begins.
