New Jerusalem
  JERRY BROWNING  

 NAKED DREAMS   

 


 
New Jerusalem

priests defiled the temple,
kings tarnished golden rings
satisfied the vile peasantís
saviored souls would keep
but knowledge set them free

across the shadow's valley
to lands without birthright,
wanderers who dug in deep
found treasure with a price,
scruples petrified by might

unleashed, the black rock genie
cares not the holderís needs
consuming whims and wishes
to selfish merchantís glee
fueling ignorance with greed

canaanís come of age now
fertile, glowing virgin bride
haggard matrons pray to see her
slash-faced and terrorized,
abr'amís altered sacrifice

              Runnells, Iowa '10
