“Second Coming”

Michael Peach

If Prophet Yeshu does come back to Earth,
Should Armageddon be about to strike,
Humanity will undergo rebirth
And know at last what’s right in life to like.
For, far from turning up to win the war,
As Christian and Sunni militants believe,
He’ll render universal peace before
The nukes begin to blast; then duly leave.
In short, like God, he’ll want us to be free,
Not ruled by him or neo-theocrats;
Indeed, he’ll resurrect democracy,
Since crucified he was by autocrats.
++Though only God can enable “Christ’s” return,
++The States the “second coming” of Trump can spurn.
