Caesar and God

by Jim Rapp

We should not confuse
persecution with a just
judge’s sentencing.

If you must refuse
a civic duty, you must
step aside smiling.

No man is required,
in the U.S., to deny
tenants of his sect.

But if you’ve aspired
to be clerk of court, then why
do you not respect

and uphold the laws
a sworn clerk must apply and
defend in good faith?

To do otherwise
claims for faith a right to stand
in law’s ordained place.
