Austerity and God
by Jan Oscar Hansen
Bookmark and Share
 

The supermarket which calls itself Forum,
has a bell tower, but now in time of
austerity, no one flocks to buy anything
when its bells ring every hour.
 
Sunday, when I drove my wife to church,
the car park was full and the bells didn’t
toll in vain; and when I looked through
the window, people were singing hymns.
 
When time is good, god becomes distant.
But now with economic times and threats
of a new war looming...people turn to
an abstraction in time of a unsure future.
 
Mind, god looks after his own flock, walking
around the car park, I noticed most cars
looked new, but if you have got it and want
to keep it, a prayer goes a long way...

Poem Comment You refer to 'god' as an abstraction people turn to... But identity is an abstraction, and yet you believe things exist: why not God, the creator of identity?
