Selfie Nation

Incessant selfie society,
sick to our self-absorbed souls,
mired in a miasma of mirrors
and cameras carried everywhere
to capture every pointless moment
of our tiny little lives.
Christ commanded denial of self,
but our faith’s in Easy Jesus,
not the crucified risen One.
We really believe in self-love,
self-service not self-sacrifice.
I worship me, not Thee.
Do not rest assured,
Christ is coming.
When he arrives he will unsettle
the smug hubris of selfie nation
with a fire too hot to stand,
unless you’re with the Fourth Man.
