the neighbours are up in arms

all complaining that our fence

is too far beyond their reach

(still standing as its always stood

hasnt moved a jot in all these ages

despite their ceaseless denial)

though determined to pull it to them

it stands unmoved and unchanged

yet they seek, they work, they strive

to mingle what stands within

with what lies outside its gate

but though they build new walls

the old have not been moved

and they give themselves rest

upon sureties feeble and frail



They call it a “debate” this issue of the Church accepting “revisions” to the Truth (whether of origin; morality or practice). Less a debate than an all-out assault on the fortress of God by this world. Wanting something thats never been True, and saying we are wrong for calling it a lie when all we want is for the dead to live.
