Sonnet #14 - a sonnet with your name on it - Shah Afshar

Sonnet #14, a Sonnet with Your Name on it: Shah Afshar

We read of heroes, heretics and fools
between the lines of truth become confused
Conformity confused with "one accord"
is stamped with affirmation by the board

and God looks down to see the hero's shame
Declared as guilty takes the rebel's blame
and enters it into the Book of Acts
where Heaven's judgment will reveal the facts

But we see Jesus entering the boat
and pushing off the shore as rulers gloat
The plans of men are laid and set as traps
so honest men like Christ will take the rap
like fingers point at Jesus just offshore
so Shah Afshar through shame gains God's rapport
