    Poetry for a Bishop
    By Andre Austin

    I see a theological pea brain
    Throwing salt on peoples suffering and pain
    He lies in wait in his spaceship
    Which he calls the office of the Bishop
    And he certainly has a vision he sings
    Of a white porcelain toilet with angelic wings
    Flying down from heaven’s gate to make a flush
    New Orleans its victim with much raw sewage mush
    Cities rise and fall just like Rome
    As we were herded like cattle into the Superdome
    The levies broke and then many were slain
    Saying God caused it will bring no prophet or gain

    Notes: Dear Bishop the lord isn’t held captive in the wind, earthquakes and fire (1Kings 19:11-12). It’s the Levy not God.

    I forgot to dedicate this to a black Republican Ira combs of Jackson,Michigan who thought god flushed the toliet of Black people in New Orleans

    Anything that 'starts and 'finish with Katrina, still sadens the heartstring.
