The Franciscan Monk Looked To The East

The Franciscan monk looked to the
East and saw the “icon of icons,”
Jesus spread legged over hell pulling
One after another to safety. We like
To think that our salvation was assured
By a simple, little affirmation made
In junior high and as we grow older
And more cynical that “we four and
No more,” whoever the other three
May be, go to heaven after we die.
But Jesus stands over us and pulls us
Up out of the hell we have created,
Showing that hell is no more for we
Four, whoever the other three may
Be, and for all of creation forevermore
And eternity.
