God is on sabbatical leave

Friends, here is the situation:
The Kings and all their ministers are gone for a box office love movie.
Our elected noble and wise lawmakers go on comparative studies abroad, comparing their books of laws, hi-tech accesories and salaries.
Our revolutionary middle class arguing for a revolution, sipping Starbuck's coffee, then races to malls for shopping spree .
. . . and God is on sabbatical leave
. . . and they are all leave us home alone.

Yes, we are all alone when those market worshipers sneak in through our backdoor, grining, laughing. like a gang of ghosts.
. . . and in no time unveiled faces of poverty appear all around the house.

. . . and with a single Midas touch, they turned us into commodities to be sold in a market we never made. (March 14, 2008)
