J-Z and his "If"
I wonder why
a man who tells us not to deem the past
as something that contains a wealth of pleasant scenes
will keep referring to events
that played out on a crucial day
in 33 CE
as glorious, love filled,
to be remembered, too
as those that brought and brings
salvation unto men like me and you.
And then there is the way,
despite his bold assertions that to think on "coming times"
as ours, since they, as yet, are not realities,
he keeps rejoicing in his visions of
just what he claims he’s certain is his future destiny.
I think the charge of inconsistency of thought
and rubbish, poorly formulated claims
to lay upon this preachy “poet’s feet.
