Inspired by Luke 24:13-35 and current events
It's confusing, American generals get statues
Even for the battles that they lose
These days are unprecedented, novel.
Been waiting 400 years for this.
The past is finally becoming obsolete
Like the dormant, dead dictator
It is. Losers cannot win.
Overheard Jesus talking on the way today.
Said something about redemptive suffering.
Here’s hoping America rises
From its grave
Looking like a black native
We all recognize.
