Religious Thoughts of the 21st Century
On the twelfth day of Christmas
Hot cross buns appeared in Woolworths.
Lead us not into taxation
But deliver us through negative gearing and family trusts
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst
For they leave more of the world’s resources
Thou shalt not say
‘Thou shalt not.’
Behold, the virgin shall be with child
And he shall be called
Son of IVF.
What does it profit a man
If he gains his soul
And loses the whole wide world?
For Julie & others
Is there humour in a tumour?
Only that Jesus has laughed at death.
Is there an answer for cancer?
Only that love is not benign.
But in the commotion of emotion
We will need to be held
By the hands and hearts
of our brothers and sisters
While always underneath
are the Everlasting Arms.
Longer Poems and Reflections
- Geoff Leslie
Flames in the Old Cemetery
In the place of death, flames of hope
In the gloom of winter, the shout of scarlet
Grace in word and deed on Loan
