An Active God

- and thank you for the tidal wave
you visited upon the earth
mysterious ways - mysterious grave
of innocents - mysterious dearth
of justice here but let it pass
if ours is not to reason why
for what is reason but a crass
creation of a babel - I
shall scourge myself - henceforth renounce
every attempt to interfere
with your intentions - I shall pounce
upon the throat of any here
who in their thought or word or deed
claim to observe in any man
a hint of grace - there lies the seed
of our destruction - swifter than
the hawk you fall upon the head
of those of us who misbehave -
and those who don't you drown instead
and blessings on your tidal wave -
