The work of man’s hand,
those are our idols – TV, phones, cars, etc.
Anything man puts on a pedestal
takes away from God.
As long as, these things are not physically harming us,
we find nothing wrong with self-indulging.
That is what we tell ourselves
to avoid asking questions,
to get by unscathed.
We readily accept; tolerate
what is not pleasing
to keep up with modern times.
