“Strivers, not skivers”
“Lifters not leaners”
Slick phrases used by so-called Christian leaders
to divide and rule us,
and demean the less fortunate.
So, let me tell you, I have a dream:
that we the people
send so-called Christian political leaders on a quest:
sent out like trusty knights of old
to seek honesty, integrity, fairness, service to the people not corporations.
Shiny-Faced PoshBoy Cameron in the UK
BullyBoy Abbott in Australia
Bomber McCain, Corporate Hillary Clinton,
Drone Lover Obama in the US
those who call themselves Christians
then turn their backs on the poor and the needy
and the unemployed and the homeless
and the working poor
or who want war and conflict rather than
reason and peace.
So off we sent them to live on the streets,
dressed in second-clothing (so they know what it feels like
to be poor,
to fret about how to pay bills because they now have to endure
the cuts they imposed on the disadvanaged,
to mourn that they don’t have the money or power
to buy billion-dollar bombers and fighters.
And as we want them to experience
what the end result of their war-mongering is,
we also send them to
Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Yemen, Ukraine, Somalia, Gaza, the West Bank.
what is the treasure they’re hunting for?
Humility; Compassion; Honesty; Empathy; Peace; Integrity; Honour,
Serving the people, helping the poor, the homeless, the downtrodden, the unemployed
the working poor, but NOT the corporate 1%.
Sorry, folks – they’re still searching!
