AntiChristian Trump

Communion does not approach dawn
to vilify our most public egotistic victims
and predators.

Who would it help
to dismiss, with terrifying labels,
iconic
reproductions of sacred history?

But, global legends
contain lessons
for our interdependent
deep cultural learning.

What is a Western Messiah,
an Eastern Bodhisattva?

A wise leader
who sacrifices personal health
safety
enlightenment
immediately transcendent empowerment,
on behalf of those left behind,
poor in spirit,
wounded in nature,
fractured in mind and body.

So, an AntiChrist
is self-serving,
a worshiper of mammon,
a capitalist pig,
if you prefer,
although this feels unfair
to the contented
peace-loving reputation
of healthy pigs.

An AntiChrist
would weigh the value
of personal
and corporate quarterly,
and annual,
and election term profits
more heavily
more selfishly
more anti-Christian
more anti-Islam
more anti-Buddha
more anti-peace
more anti-health
more anti-compassion
than the value of aging lives
most transparently vulnerable
to this post-millennial Virus.

No naturally healthy
and spiritually wealthy
and religious person,
whether disciple of Christ
or follower of Mohammed
or contemplative with Buddha
or ecofeminist as yin-faced Laotse,
could look
and listen
and feel
and think
with cooperative integrity
to discover restorative fruits
of the Holy Spirit
and/or indigenous HolyWind
in the Nationalist Republican
and narcissistic Capitalist Trump
administration

Competing against multicultural campaigns promoting
Love,
faithfulness to wealth of health,
hope for conserving Earth’s living safety,
gentleness,
kindness,
long-suffering patience,
goodness,
integrity,
meekness,
peaceful democratic compassion.

By our active love for Other,
for the immigrant,
the sinner,
the pagan,
for even those who are privileged
and intolerant supremacists
and bullies,
are we known as not AntiChrists.

None of us can prove
by salvific action
or fruitful compassionate deed
that we are redeemed Christians.

But all of us can disprove
by unhealthy degenerative divestments,
by selfish actions,
by pathological misdeeds,
by violent and intentionally misdirecting words,
that we are unredeemed AntiChrists;

Not that I believe Biden
and the not green and non-violent enough Democrats
are likely to invite,
much less multinationally enact,
the global healthy wealth Second Coming
of Earth’s peaceful rapture.
