Life

The dead words
  f

      l
and no one claims
  they are dead
no life is in them
  if it is not love
it is not of God
  the hardest words
to remember, to live 
    instead we cry crucify again
and call it politic
  just as a Pharisee
    scribe
      levite
Roman would
  we assure ourselves 
with fear 
   wrapped with good intention
sadness

from those who we are
    to serve
 servants
have we forgotten
    life,
       resurrection,
          loves song,
instead we hide among
   the tombs claiming power
