“I’m Allowed to be Angry”

according to the prophets
Isaiah
Jeremiah
Ezekiel
Hosea
Micah
Nahum
Habakkuk

and Jesus

i’m allowed to be angry

that people who call themselves
children of God

worship idols
sacrifice their children to idols
whip their neighbors as slaves
to idols

turn their backs on God
and act as if He doesn’t exist

call the lifeless crap
“God”

and treat it
as if it were
as important as

the almighty
all-knowing
Supreme Being
that we believe
created us
and the world.

equate your phone with God
equate your car with God
equate your boss with God

and I get angry

i’m allowed to be angry.
