Culture War

No I will not fight your culture war

Or join your rhetoric combat,

Launching ballistic sound bites at “them”

Tipped with deadly, vitriol warheads.

Every war has its casualties;

Collateral damage to reckon.

You can win battles but lose the war,

Conquer a nation but not the hearts.

Rule the land, yet as occupiers

Winning and losing at the same time.

Consider your foe, for which Christ died,

For him you will give a reckoning.

Whether with tread of your verbal tank

You trod him flat, into bloody field

Or Samaritan-physician like,

Healed the patient’s fatal heart sickness.

Recall your true foe, who wears not skin

But is a spirit cloaked in darkness
