a poem by Joseph Farley

Praise the Heretics

Praise be the heretics
who place the search for wisdom
over the power of tradition.

Praise be the blasphemers
who claim to have seen God.
Praise be the martyrs to holy fire,

their bodies, piles of wood
meant to make society shine brighter
from the ashes of their bones.
