Food for Thought-You Give People with Beards a Bad Name (A Poem of Peace)


You give people with beards a bad name,
People think with all this hair,
We must be the same,
You’ve tried to ruin the look,
For Methodists and Moderates,
We’re all people of the book,
One God,
Where did you read the part,
“Thou shalt kill”?
What if Mohammed meant,
“Careful not to spill,
Your enemies blood”,
For they are your sisters and brothers,
Made from the same mud,
People from the Earth,
We are deemed to inhabit,
You make a beautiful religion,
Seem like a dud,
Cut off the anger’s head,
Let the negativity,
Roll out of town,
Turn those frowns,
Into smiles,
And we will all calm down,
As remember this weekend,
By not uttering a sound,
About each other,
In your pulpits
Or mine,
And all of us,
Will be just fine.

Food for Thought-What I Learned by Reading the Side of Facebook Today


What I Learned by Reading the Side of Facebook Today

Who scored the winning goal,
While two jets crash,
With no death toll,
Will I send funds to Bangladesh,
When I stroll,
Where Archduke Franz Ferdinand,
Waved goodbye and told,
A Serbian gunmen,
“What up, I gots to roll.”

–Richard Bryant

Food for Thought-Too Close to Home (A Poem) — May 30, 2014

Food for Thought-Too Close to Home (A Poem)

A bomb exploded at a large hotel about one mile from one of my churches last night.

Too Close to Home

There was a bomb near home last night,
the explosion caused a powerful fright,
the hooded man carried a bag,
burdened with death into the crag.

The stony front desk at the Hotel Everglades,
to which he announced I am from the IRA,
if you are not gone from here in 45 minutes,
that time from now with be your death sentence.

As he disappears, what do you do?
Frozen with fear or call others too?
Lives matter in these recent days,
with Feinian boys games aren’t played.

–Richard Bryant
