Jeru, Salem, Babylon

where have all your children gone?

Reasoned reasons

stole them away


In the shade of a mustard tree

it’s where they were meant to be

but the olive shoots

are choked in the weeds


Ichabod, Ichabod

doused the fire, now its gone

gods in our image

powerless to act


Keep your wine, Keep your bread

Pigs food for a feast instead

Prodigals wander alone

Will you come home?


Hosea, run and and get your bride

hold up your arms and stem the tide

picture of heaven

scrawled in the mud

written in blood
