Politicians and Prophets

The people’s appetite for payback seems

unparalleled when we talk about punishment for

unpopular popes, presidents, protesters,

prosecutors, panderers, and pimps.

May God’s grace protect us if ever the

riptides of the people’s whims and waves

swoop in to sweep the feet out from under the

brave, observant, and truthful jester.
