at the end mercy

Pentecost +26 - Year C
ready or not 
King Jesus reigns 
and life is still falling apart.
"Jesus is Lord"
doesn't solve everything
we've had a year
and 2,000+ years
still no paradise in sight
not knowing what is going on
is as popular as ever
as is gambling power
so "Doom" and "Woe" to leaders
repeating what doesn't work
until all are scattered
paradise is over the horizon
and unremembered
never begun in this moment
time's coming
time's nearly up
light a candle for mercy's sake
forgiveness offering
paradise opening
reconciliation extending
in whatever order we work
every background field reveals
variations on humble mercy
