USA Africa Dialogue Series - The Testimonies Are Threadbare (Poem)

By Chidi Anthony Opara 

Miracle merchants
Mount microphones,
Tumble in torrent.
Tumble into tithe trunks,
Submerge into offering sacks,
Suffering is on sabbatical.

Miracle seekers
One after another
Mount altars
Mouthing testimonies,
Their love for microphones

Shadows terrify them
And tie them to the togas
Of merchants of miracles.

The terrors tarry,
The miracles emerge,
The testimonies are threadbare.
