Timothy Larsen – Homecoming [Poem]

February 21, 2019

 

Homecoming
Timothy Larsen

When our Lord Jesus Christ
returned to Earth, one of the
first things he did
was to organize us all to gather up
all the rubbish and garbage
floating aimlessly in the oceans.
Each worked according
to his or her ability,
just as dear Karl Marx had
dreamed we would
so long ago.
It was like we were guided
by an invisible hand.
