Just Listen
by Jay Ork


you lay buried for two thousand years
until a farmer saw you in a furrow
and claimed you for his own

now you cry, still bleeding,
for the sins of Columbus and Reagan
and the wandering spirit of your creator

and you stand, sacred and disciplined,
sharing your vast knowledge with arrogant strangers
who cannot understand the simplicity of your message:

turn off your computers and listen,
just listen
