Plastic Jesus

Plastic Jesus

Entombed in plastic
My lord speaks
Brought low by thrifty men
His dangerous words forgotten
Divinity branded
His glory exchanged for a bar code
Cosmic Creator constrained
With a tiny TM
The Lion of Judah
Pushed into a cage
The Lamb of God
Sacrificed at the altar of good taste
The voice of the prophet
Silenced for profit
As affluence pours
Not to the poor
But to the affluent
In a sad twist
Jesus sold at the table
Of the money changers
No one hears the cries
From inside his plastic tomb
As onward Christian soldiers
March to war
We dream an American Dream
Eyes shut to the Kingdom Vision
Followers of Jesus shopping in the city
With Jesus bound and gagged in the trunk
A day in the life of the Church
Of the American Empire
