ST. PARADOX

I wanted to write a serious sonnet, and each line had to contain at least one paradox.

 

Falling upwards, seeing faith so blindly,

Crucifixes starring at your summit;

Screaming bloody hatred, smiling kindly,

Causing mankind's rising hopes to plummet.

 

Stealing from the wicked as they're praying,

Calm with rage you cry a happy war song;

Vengeful mercy's thoughts are darkly graying,

All will strip these earthly clothes before long.

 

Fly your crashing flag and die immortal,

Yesterday's tomorrow passes slowly;

Shout your secrets, close the open portal,

Heaven's hell is only for the holy.

 

Somewhere in the Neverland of winning

Screams will choke on breaths of righteous sinning.
