poem: Peace Comes Dropping Slow by Ken Peters

Peace Comes Dropping Slow

glacially
when bloody Christians
aren’t looking
incrementally
when red Imams
aren’t listening
inexorably
inevitably
when wall building Zionists
and bomb laden Palestinians
are sleeping
God must be laughing
at this horror
because my prayer
“dear God
protect me from
your beleivers”
may not be enough
while I wait for glaciers, trees and rivers
to replane this terra
into Eden
