FOR GOD’S SAKE GIVE US SOME REALITY


Nicely rounded explanations

Safe and sanitised solutions

A magic text for every doubt

A definitive answer for every mystery

“There, there everything’s going to be alright.”

FOR GOD’S SAKE GIVE US SOME REALITY.


A woman abused and left used, abused and lonely

A teenage widow behind the love of her life’s coffin

A child whose legs were ripped from his body by landmines

A ten year old township orphan cooking for her little brothers

A father whose child has been found strangled in the forest park

FOR GOD’S SAKE GIVE US SOME REALITY.


A recently wall papered stable

Freshly washed cattle and perfumed straw

A carpenter with extra mural studies in midwifery

Theologically sound eastern stargazing mystics

A perfect little baby “no crying he makes”

FOR GOD’S SAKE GIVE US SOME REALITY.


Impoverished and homeless

Germs breeding in the filth and squalor

A teenage girl screams birth fierce pain

Death squads in the dawn’s first light

Refugees running in fear of their lives

FOR GOD’S SAKE, BORN INTO THE MIDST OF REALITY.

Ein sehr bewegendes Gedicht.

Christentum, Kunst und soziale Gerechtigkeit.

Sheep Island
Bei Ebbe läuft gern das ein oder andere Schaf durch das Watt auf die Insel. Kommt die Flut wundert sich der Tourist: Wie jetzt? Kran?
