Poem: While Men Slept

The Cloudburst poem with the above title, sent today by email through the list, was inspired by an article.

It was Mike Riley’s “While Men Slept,” which forcefully reminds us of the need for watchfulness.

We are not only sleeping, but allowing ourselves to be lulled to sleep.

It is our watch and the kingdom is being ransacked.

  1. so much reminded of the current debates in the primaries, that our focus is diverted by issues that are much less important. Also, where you used justice – center line, perhaps the exact middle word – perfect, and other words relating to justice, gospel, truth et.al. would fit there too!

    Great Job!
