    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 it victim with much raw sewage mush
    Cities rise and fall just like Rome
    As we were herded like cattle in 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.

    This poem was a reaction to a Bishop who said God flushed the toilet on New Orleans.

    To: Ambassador from Venezuela
    RE: New Bishop of Venezuela
    Date: 1.18.2007

    Bishop Combs is slated to be the new Bishop of Venezuela which in my opinion is a mistake. Bishop Combs comes from the community from which I live here in Jackson, Michigan. Combs through the ideology of the Republican Party despises poor people and blames them for their own misfortune. A year ago Black people suffered from Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans and Combs called it God flushing the toilet.

    Your President, Hugo Chavez has linked President Bush mind and actions with that of the beast who leaves a trail of sulfur. In the past Bush has made speeches desiring to bring in the fire of destruction just like the rhetoric of Hitler. Combs is lap dog to Bush. In in new position of Bishop of Venezuela would surely use any information gathering for the benefit of Bush at the peril of your president. Bishop Combs used his influence to campaign for Bush in 2000 and in 2004 and would help him to the end of his term in 2009.

    Bishop Combs is the type of person who shields his religion to advance a political ideology to benefit the rich against the poor. Unfortunately, his political agendas doesn’t end at U.S. borders.
