(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in being on Santa Jesus’ ‘Nice List’ after the riot”)
You would riot if you had a reason.
What good is a rebel without a cause?
Your anger is your d”anger.” High Treason.
Riot for Peace, for Grace. Please press the Pause.
I riot in my mind and my heart falls
in with the mob rule: To end all despair.
Am I alone in my riot that calls
for Peace, Pause, Be Still, Breathe, Night and Day Prayer?
“Peace I leave with you, Peace I give to you.
Please don’t riot for nothing of a cause.
My Peace is not of this world. I am who
I say I am, and I am Santa Claus,
Santa Jesus, giving you Love Gifts. Quiet!
I’m comin’ to town after the riot.”
