The Devil in Pastor Jones


No white dove flew from gator land:
a preacher burned gas-soaked Qur'an —
some verses born in desert sand —
and lit aflame Afghanistan.

Kill devils fly when myths collide
and people called to take a side.
With ease these devils seem to glide
between a man-made writ divide.

Notes: Terry Jones (not the Monty Python guy) is the pastor of Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Florida. The Devil in Miss Jones is a cult-porn classic.
