Poems Vernon L. Harper

Christian has come to mean
something other than “Little Christ.”

Some things like “judge, jury, executioner.”
or “Very nice and very fake.”
 
We are perceived as the culture
and its master intends.
 
Do we work hard enough to
topple this stacked deck?
 
Or do we plant it, water it,
contribute to its growth?
 
Christians must live in this world submerged,
this world baptized in Noah’s flood.
 
The questions: “Keep on your helmet?”
or “Tragically inhale the water?”
 
In any case there is God up above in the light
lovingly working the pumps.
