Lion of Judah

A god that does not

nor cares to

walk upon the shore of a vast sea,

breathing in the salty air,

relishing what he himself

made

 

is not worth a prayer.

 

A god who does not buckle on

scabbard and mail

to go before his children

to seek his enemies upon the field,

foes for the slaughter,

 

is not worth a lighted candle.

 

A god who does not stand

at the tomb of whom he loved

and weep

 

is worth no devotion of any kind.

 

A god who does not taste

or breathe, or hate

who does not curse, or love

or serve, nor cares to

 

is a god worth mere disdain

no more than mockery

 

is no God at all.
