On the Fence

You can't be
on the fence
with Jesus;

you gotta stand
on either side.
It's either/or;
it's neither/nor.

It's cherubs
on the ceiling,
or it's fire
beneath your feet.

It's morning's
shining glories,
or it's nightshade's
deadly vines.

Stay put,
you forfeit

don't stay,
you tumble
either way.


  1. Shall we stand on the greener pastures?

    Nice Karen. I like this very much.

  2. No Jesus and me can't be on the fence, that barb wire hurts our butts. Yet we need not agree on which side of the fence we wish to walk it is all one universe.

  3. Oh but I try to be on the fence more often than not. Well, maybe not about Jesus, but about religion anyway...
