POETRY / Larry Piltz : The Messiah is always coming

Cartoon: Jesus-ufo-nesara / mattstone.blogs.com.

The Messiah is always coming
with a wink and a constant drumming
with a fife and annoying humming
to a world that believes He’ll be slumming
yes the Messiah is always coming

The Messiah is always arriving
with His seatbelt fastened and driving
to root out the dull and conniving
and to chasten the kooks and the thriving
thank God the Messiah’s surviving

The Messiah is stoically faithful
and should be eternally grateful
that His world has been ever so hateful
His believers so doggedly fateful
in keeping His vengeful plate full

The Messiah is always just waiting
for a time that’s a little less grating
and a world less obsessed with its mating
otherwise there’ll be no hesitating
when His robes get their armor plating

The Messiah is always coming
with a wrench to look at the plumbing
to a world that is down with its dumbing
and whose rationalizations are numbing
which is why He must always be coming

The Messiah is coming to face us
and is thinking He might have to mace us
while He sorts out the Wiccans and racists
on a first come first serve basis
as He retrofits our oasis
good thing our Messiah’s in stasis

The Messiah is always coming
to a world that believes He’ll be slumming

    Larry – this is outstanding. I trust we’ll see a rock video in the coming months (starring Keith Richards, I hope), as this piece deserves its place in history.

  2. Excellent! My rss feeds are fouled up, so I’m not getting updates; had to mess around with Windows to figure out what the problem was – surely worth the effort after reading this ‘poem’.

    Maybe we could even say the Messiah is always ‘ on the come’???? That would make for an even more ‘suggestive’ piece of prose.

    Can’t keep it mum
    sometimes it’s like
    like the black people would say of a prostitute
    who’s ‘on the come’???

    Sum or some
    sum of or some of many
    tell me how many are willing
    to part with a penny
    any or all
    would anyone like to just

    Naughty – sorry Richard, if you chose to delete this one.

    Hope all is well. Diane
