This Savior

this Savior
is our only savior
no man
no government
no party, politician, policy or plan
is the source of our salvation
salvation from anything
salvation from everything
man offers nothing
man can do nothing
man will lead you into
and around the wilderness
into darkness
into blindness
ending in nowhere
nothing but glitter
smoke and mirrors
these cheap saviors
nothing but promises
handing out empty hope
gifts that break
that's what man does
that's what man does well
their wells
are dry holes
no matter how deep you go
there's no water there
nothing to quench the thirst
of the weary and dying
there is no savior
but this Savior
David B Finlayson
