Lasciate Ogni Speranza
“Abandon all hope, ye who enter here
Unmasked!” The current message from my church
Seems less than welcoming. Is it sincere?
I have no doubt. Voluminous research
Persuades me that the mask is now assessed
As more important than the state of grace.
Masklessness is a sin to be confessed.
Masklessness is a thing from outer space.
I should be pissed instead of entertained.
The clown show, though, is just too much for me.
Government bureaucrats are mealworm-brained—
And churchmen join them in stupidity.
Part of me think it’s absolutely swell
To see such words, as on the Gates of Hell.
