A New Easy Essay – #3

peter maurin – Version 2The modern program of the church
Is to create new programs

We are programmed
To follow programs
And to make programs
Which is why people make
so many programs
of which
they get so bored
and move on
to make more programs

And secretly
The church thinks
That new programs
Are the answer
To getting people into church
And will even appeal
To those outside
the church

Feeding the hungry
Clothing the naked
Harbouring the harbourless
Are not programs
Which is why programmed program-makers
Do much better administering the works of war than
Bringing about the kingdom of God
