God’s Fool

posted in: Creative Corner, Poetry | 0

Stalking the corridors — corridas —
Of will, of want, of won’t,
Celebrating mysteries,
Cerebrating miseries,
Adam wanders, wonders
How others can be
As foolish as he.

Compassion intended, untended,
Sours and clouds,
Distilling, perhaps, in time, into
The heady wine of righteousness.
But Adam knows of wine:
Fooler of fools.

Adam, unseen but ever watching,
Treads on our consciences,
Keeps us honest.
