The Misfit

“I want it all
and I want it now,”
is the advertisement’s clarion call —
a cavernous “Christian” country’s maw.
“It’s better to give than to receive.
The one who loses his life will find it.”
It is capitalism’s intent to deceive.
In evangelical America, the real Jesus is a misfit.
He says, “You cannot serve both God and mammon.”
Well then, pack up that Jesus and ship him off via Amazon.
