MONDAY: THE TEMPLE


What is this PLACE?
Is it a place of prayer, the keeper of the Torah?
Or is it a bank... the house of profit... the home to consumption?

These tables must be overturned... this system must be destroyed...
All hell is going to break loose... IT'S TIME, I CAN'T LET THIS CONTINUE...

My brothers and sisters sit along the street hungry and lonely
While "they" are getting fat from this NEW TEMPLE OF THE EMPTY SHRINE

God wants to come back to the temple but there's no room for both God and your idols!!

NOBODY GETS HURT... BUT EVERYONE GETS THE MESSAGE!!!

Tables turned
Upsidedown Kingdom proclaimed
A crazy man has come into your presence
He's under Rome's radar
The elite are pissed
But the joke's on all of us...

Marketplace religion
Marketplace politics
Capitalism before it was Superpower...
Tables turned

Upsidedown Kingdom proclaimed
Radical... open... communal... shared...
This is the place where God seeks space
Look upon the outcast and you'll see Gods face
Entering the temple of the empty shrine
God has come back... and is taking up residence...

But now Rome has taken notice... along with the elites...
Breathing just got a little heavier. I need to pray and be alone for a while.

too many capital letters. I must overturn your keyboard.

Capitalism has indeed spoiled this country....

What? Not that kind of capital?

Nevermind.
