THE FIRST SHALL BE LAST-Poem [Sun, 1-27-19]

If you start with the power
Of God, you get omniscience
Which ends in predestination

If you start with the creation
Of God, you get naturalism
Which ends in pantheism

If you start with the humanity
Of god, you get humanism
Which ends in anthropomorphism

But if you start with the loneliness
of God, you get no isms,
just an old man on a park
bench, a housewife with her head
in the oven, a teen crying at the end
of a row of lockers, and an old woman
with rolled hose, feeding pigeons

Which ends in Adam and Eve

John Robert McFarland
