Poem: “You Tore a Page”


You Tore a Page

You tore a page from Job to roll a cigarette
And as you tore the flesh of God from Him
So from your dying body will be torn your limb

You bragged of how you burned away
The flesh of God from the body of His name
So will those who take your limb show off the same

But still if you profess your shame and plead
For rescue and forgiveness in the dark and pain
Christ will come in mercy, love, and you will live again
