The Ordination

The Ordination short poem

At the border of a church
marked by shame and seclusion
Stood a man on the throat
of reason

Glorious treason conducted
By the song birds of compassion
Held the man in their mirth
of delusion

The cold pulpit floor
Cursed the day and its duties
The old book
Turned away its face

When the man climbed the stairs
And stood at the border
of sanctification

Intriguing verse on an old age conflict- Religion and logic – very few words but they speak volumes..Wonderful writing @Jasper_Daniel
