Power
By Mary T. Hoffman

This is the Lord you say?
How can it be?
No pomp,
No arrogance,
No majesty.
With Him,
No haughty rhetoric holds sway.

He’s just a lowly sort
The politicians snort,
The ones who cower
And pay respect
To those with monetary power.
We cannot let this Man
Abolish our tradition.
Do things His way?
Why, that’s out and out sedition!

We must hold on to power,
Have people cringe and cower.
With fear we keep the masses down.
This Jesus must not steal our crown!
