"Church and World" by Robert Hodgell


I am becoming unraveled

A thousand little deaths

The edifice of my hands is crumbling

All I hold dear has been taken

But like a dragon

Precious jewels long ago stolen

I sit alone in my cave and dream

As if nothing has happened


Of it all is I knew this day was coming

I foresaw my own downfall

But did not want to admit it to anyone

Not even myself

I am a Hollywood movie set

I am a Las Vegas hotel-casino

I am the Hindenburg

Rotting from the inside out

I am a natural disaster

My plates are shifting

I thought the volcano was dormant

I am the shallow well

I am the plank in my own eye

Sometimes knowledge is paralyzing
