Baptism by Fire by Paula Puolakka

Poem

John the Baptist preached
that he will baptize people with water,
but the One will baptize people with
the Holy Spirit.

The Second Coming is baptism by fire:
there will be no mercy,
there will be no earthly healing,
and there will be no tenderness and love.

The fire will spread across the sky
and consume all oxygen.
There shall be blood and a narrow,
black-and-white, division, who shall enter
the kingdom of G-d?
