In the Catacombs


by Jim Rapp

How dark the world must have seemed
when believers huddled together
to protect themselves from those
who sought to destroy them and their faith.

How much darker when guardians of the faith
have sold their souls to deceitful politicians
while piling up riches for moths to destroy;
building kingdoms for rust to erode.

How utterly dark
when one cannot tell the servant of God
from the servant of Mammon;
When all dress, and talk, and act the same.

When the kingdom of this world
has become the kingdom of our God,
and  all  bow down to it,
with whom do you huddle then?
