Verse – Packin’ heat for Jesus

“Pack some heavy heat, Boys,”
said Jesus to the Apostles
on his way to pray in the
Garden of Gethsemane

and off again to the Mount
of Olives – that liberal
haunt with olive branches,
doves, and sh-t like that –

“Conceal and carry, Boys,”
he’d said, in the Upper Room
where that sissy John
laid against his breast –

“Get your guns, Boys,
the Fags, Commies, and
Mohammad-lovers are
comin’ to kill our faith.

“You have heard that it was
said, ‘love your neighbor’,
but I say, take ‘em out, Boys,
we’re ‘the home of the brave’.”

  1. During the debacle of the political posturing for votes, I have been discerning the difference between: “What is true?” and “What is truth?”. I truly believe the world confuses these two questions. Pilate was asking for direction, he recognized the lies of the High Priest. Jesus said he was truth and he also said that he and the Father(sic) was one. Truth, in my opinion, gives direction to life. What is true discerns the facts of life. Just random thoughts your poem brought to my mind. Thanks for all of your insights. Also thanks for keeping updated won Steve Shoemaker.
