Sulamith's Apples

The world is wide and the world is round,
laughter and tears, is what I've found.
I'm marching side by side with the train
that follows the hidden track down through the rain.
And when I come to the garden of love,
I'll visit sweet Sulamith, rising above.

The horror-clowns are in charge of the plane,
they're crashing into September again.
Green Day are reciting "Civil War",
and Axl Rose is heading for heaven's door,
St. Francis meets the devil in disguise,
he tells him, he's now a follower of Christ.

Oh help me out of my bleeding shoe,
and come, hold my hands, they are wounded, too.
Take it away, oh, this thorny crown,
and dress up into your wedding gown!
Give me a kiss, wash away all this strife,
and be my girl for the rest of my life.

Book by Patrick Rabe:


Gottes Zelt: Glaubens- und Liebesgedichte von Patrick Rabe

Die Glaubens-und Liebesgedichte von Patrick Rabe sind mutig, innig, streitbar, vertrauens- und humorvoll, sie klammern auch Zweifel, Anfechtungen und Prüfungen nicht aus, stellen manchmal gewohnte Glaubensmuster auf den Kopf und eröffnen dem Leser den weiten Raum Gottes. Tief und kathartisch sind seine Gedichte von Tod und seelischer Wiederauferstehung, es finden sich Poeme der Suche, des Trostes, der Klage und der Freude. Abgerundet wird das Buch von einigen ungewöhnlichen theologischen Betrachtungen. Kein Happy-Clappy-Lobpreis, sondern ein Buch mit Ecken und Kanten, das einen Blick aufs Christentum eröffnet, der fern konservativer Traditionen liegt.
