The latest Cloudburst poem was sent to the exclusive email list this morning, with the above title. Besides the simple AA-BB-etc. rhyme scheme, the lack of a verb is the most notable thing about it, which underlines the nothingness of those without God.

The title is taken, of course, from Eph 2.12. The poem attempts to describe in a bit of detail the hopelessness of that state. I’m sure I failed to paint it adequately.

Godlessness is most thought of as a state of rebelliousness, which it is. I chose, however, to emphasize the emptiness of it.

What do you think?
