Truth Need Not Be Defended (A Word to the Evangelical)

Your lies are indefensible.
Truth need not be defended;
your blind side the wrong side when the rushing wave descended.

The moral arc of the universe cannot be unbended.
The flash flood of justice will leave your change tables upended.

Your wicked ways disguised as right must soon be mended
lest you lose the very soul-land you have for so long left untended.
