An Ancient Magician He Be

Not a devil, a magician instead –
not exactly Merlin who is now dead,
but a wizardly magician surely he be,
a recrudescence for all to see
and worship as the one to deliver
and make all lesser beings shiver.
There is strength in that hair
as Delilah from Sampson did snare.
He tells it like it is they say
but he only repeats what they nay-say.
It is his trick as he points
and swirls his small index finger
hoping the mesmerized crowd will linger
and then will rise up in great rage
and break out of civilization’s cage.
It is the threnody that morality is a veneer,
but from such weak wizards steer clear.
They will promise to fix it all
but it forebodes a reenactment of the fall.
Rather, look to none other than the lamb,
the one who fulfills the eternal plan
to lift all creatures from the hellish condition
and celebrate the rainbow coalition:
“Jesus loves the little children
all the children of the world,
red and yellow, black, brown and white,
they are precious in his sight.
Jesus loves the little children of the world.”
