Sonnet 100 (Peter)

Sonnet 100 (Peter)

Sorrow and joy were mixed at suppertime:
He washed my feet but said that I’d betray
Him. “Never,” I said, “that would be a crime.”
We’d been together from the start, the day

He called me from the nets. “You will, three times,
Before the cock crows,” he went on. “Come pray
Inside Gethsemane with me.” Now I’m
A zealous man, but God formed me from clay.

He had to wake me when the torch lights came.
I drew my sword, slashed off an ear, he healed
It, soldiers took him. Down the trail I crept

To fireside warmth. Three times they asked–no game–
And I denied three times. Long gone, that meal.
The cock crew. I went out and wept and wept.

No need of morphine to anesthetize:

The Mideast bombs, the famines and the quakes,

Decapitated bodies, leaders’ lies,

Race riots, civil wars, polluted lakes−

 

AIDS patients, gangs of kids who terrorize

Their neighbors, robbers, thieves, religious fakes,

Child porno peddlers, murderers’ wild eyes,

Perverts and whores, policemen on the take:

 

This is enough to numb the heart and soul.

Yet though the night news desecrates my core

With vice and venom spitting from its screen,

A peace descends in knowing God’s control,

 

And that the blood of Jesus is a door

To take away my sins and wipe me clean.

Harry Reid ‘Needs To Be Kicked Out Of Office’

Nevada Rancher’s Son: Harry Reid ‘Needs To Be Kicked Out Of Office’

Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore said she spent much of the past week with the Bundy family and helped feed some of the calves that were returned over the weekend.
“It’s going to take a lot to revive the calves that were nearly dead when they were returned to the Bundy Ranch because they had been separated from their mothers during the roundup, and a few most likely won’t make it,” said Fiore, a Republican from Las Vegas. “It’s time for Nevada to stand up to the federal government and demand the return of the BLM lands to the people of Nevada.”
