35,000 bibles

cecil's poetry has always been provocative.

35,000 Bibles
stacked against a wall
seized by security
forces — Neanderthal!

Now the Gideons
are not Talibans
sowing terror
in the aisles
but their Bibles
were deemed
more incendiary
than nuclear missiles.

35,000 Bibles
sitting in the Dock
waiting to be freed
by Almighty God.
