The Sun and other 100 word vignettes

THE SUN

Only the Sun is ruler

Over the seas and lands of Earth

Over all nations

Over creatures’ great and small.

The orbs and miasma its rays strike

The void within its sweep

The shapes which alternate

Between darkness and light.

When the Sun falls it has all night to get back to the place from where it rises. A vulnerable time when destruction comes like a thief, and the skies pass away with a roar, and the galactic bodies are burned up and dissolved, and the earth and its works are exposed.

 

THE PRESIDENT

There was born a child

Who grew

To knows the habits of the President

Where the President lives

How many advisers the President has

What the current foreign policy is

What the unemployment figures are,

And when she will be President.

And behold, a president reigns in righteousness, and lawyers rule in justice. The eyes of those who see stay open, and the ears of listeners give attention. The hearts of the lusty understand and know, and the tongues of the procrastinators speak wearily. The opposition are noble, the corrupt are called to account.

 

MULTIPLE TRINITIES

A mutual worshiping society

Was formed

By a Christian sect

Who believe each member to be a god

Exclusively mingling among themselves.

Jesus among Jesus’s

Trinities among trinities

Gods the Father the Son and the Holy Ghost.

They seized their mobile phone, this modern serpent, the devil and Satan, and bound it for a thousand years, and threw it into a deep hole, and shut it and sealed it over so that it might not deceive their ears any longer, until the thousand years were ended. After that it might be released for a little while.

 

THE SHEPHERD

In a remote corner of the globe

The shepherd is revered as a deity

And none may touch the shepherd

Except another.

And all must worship the shepherd

As the shepherd worships the sun

Since together they are

The life givers.

This story is trustworthy: If anyone aspires to the office of shepherd, he desires a noble task. Therefore a shepherd must be above reproach, the husband of his sheep, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, be able to teach, not be a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. He will manage his flock well.

 

SONS OF THUNDER

A woman, outrageously attired

Believed she was integral

To the Godhead

And had men follow her.

And after communion with her divinity

The men shed their inhibitions

And they walked naked in the world.

She persuaded the men to take millstones and grind flour, to take hoes and till ground, to seek out the needy and poor, and walk behind them on streets and highways. Their nakedness is uncovered, and their disgrace is seen. They work in silence, and they go into darkness. These so-called Sons of Thunder shall be the masters of their own destinies no more.

 

THE NEW MESSIAH

A new Messiah cannot be recognised

For he will speak in all languages

And live in suburban opulence.

He will pronounce doom

Upon those who do not repent

And withdraw his forgiveness,

This Saviour of Mankind.

And because there remains much messiah confusion the new Messiah will render judgment to each human according to their works: to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and wealth and immortality, he will give eternal life; but for those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury.
