Mine eyes have seen the glory
of the coming of the Lord
He is trampling out the vintage
where the grapes of wrath
were stored but now
are turned into land mines,
On the third day
(or the second or the fifth,
or maybe some day years from now)
some unsuspecting chump
will step on a long-forgotten mine,
and ascend into heaven
on the loosed lightning of TNT,
in a smear of furious death.
I believe in the Holy Spirit:
I’ve seen him in the watchfires
of a hundred circling camps.
And I believe in the holy catholic church-
they’ve builded him an altar in the morning dews and damps.
I believe in the communion of saints
and the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of bodies,
(even blown-apart ones)
and life everlasting.
Our god is marching on.
