The “Isolation Of Our Lord”

The "Isolation of Our Lord":

That strange myth of suffering

From love for humanity - forlorn beings

Stubbing their toes in endless confusion

And self-destructive stupidity,

From the Trojan Wars to the Crucifixion

To all the other tragedies, - World Wars

One, Two, Three, Four:

lt is the sense that we do not know

What we do, that draws compassion -

Thinking for millenia that human sacrifice

ls necessary for Spring to come, -

Even though there is such great capacity

For nastiness - due to millenia

Of evolutionary pressure upon human groups

That fought against others for survival:

The myth and hope that we could get beyond

ls the real beacon light.
