God and Caesar

Both God and Caesar

have more than enough resources

so, as for me

I’ll render unto my fellow peasants

the pennies the tax collector has come calling for.

I’ll let the Romans crucify me

before I ever pay for war.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

About soitgoes1984

I was born and raised on land stolen from the Pocumtuc. I now live on a small island in the middle of the Pacific ocean, on land that was stolen more recently, from the Hawaiians. I am addict, struggling to kick the habit of fossil fuel.
