         A Blasphemous Analogy
                       by Jim Rapp 

I heard a caller to the Joy Cardin show
say that he was supporting Walker.

Citing Jesus’ words that He had come,
“not to bring peace but a sword,”
the caller justified Walker’s divisiveness,
and, by implication, made the Governor
an emissary of Christ.

As though the cause
for which the Governor divides
is equal to the eternal weight of
Christ’s redemptive work.

As though the foes
the Governor opposes – union workers –
are the equal of Satan’s kingdom,
against which the Sword of Christ makes war.

As though the sword
the Governor wields – political power –
is the earthly guarantor
of the kingdom of Heaven.
