Christ has been slain

two times over.

the man painted on the ceiling

depicted in the windows

is a false messiah

with a stolen name.

your lord was jet and olive

not this European parody;

kneel not to this warped reflection,

this blue and porcelain idol.

revision of heritage and history

is another form of murder:

a born-again St. Longinus

oblivious to the consequences of your discountenance.

Alienate and deplore your gold-skinned cousins, but

recall from whence your savior came;

what is the true difference

between Him and them?
