to empirical realities of our day –
we dropped them from our view.
to overturn our verities and lay
our fallacies in open view.
Scorned by intellectual sophisticates,
Ignored by pleasure seeking masses,
a thousand thousand-bodied army replicates
Golgotha’s bloody malice as it passes.
emerging from their murky underground
behold, two billion faith-full souls . . . and growing.
The mustard seeds have sprouted. They abound!
Their growth is sure and shows no signs of slowing.
