The Interrogation

But the financiers will ask
In that day: Is it not better
To leave broken bank balances
Behind than broken heads?

And Christ recognizing the
New warriors will feel breaching
His healed side their terrible
Pencil and the haemorrhage of its figures.

R S Thomas

I'm talking about Thomas in a prayer group tomorrow and this poem seems apposite for the week.
