There He Stood

 

 

If Luther were alive today and went with us to pray,

Would he just smile and nod at us, or shake his head and say,

“I never meant to take away the fact that wrong’s not right

Nor to say we have the right to call the darkness light.”

 

 

Would he invert the universe like modern thinkers do?

Accept the moral counterpart of one and one’s not two?

Or would he raise the fury of his great Teutonic voice,

When he is used to justify calling murder choice?

 

 

Back then he wrote a list of things and nailed them to the door.

He chose his words intemperately; stomped foot down on the floor.

Bet he speaks more softly now when he looks at what came next—

People prove most anything using just the Sacred Text.
