BREAD
    the carb-bomb 
    the gluten sewer
    the empty calorie truck-stop backstab
          to healthy balanced living
miscreant and fool enabler
of a clearcut civilization
that stares down the forest primeval
seeing only empty fields of monocrop gold.
BREAD
    public enemy #1
    sower of growing intolerance
    maligned substance of ancient abuse
    and ultimately, unthinkably,
             the compact vehicle
                   of salvation.

Greg Kennedy, SJ is assigned to the spiritual exercises ministry at the Ignatius Jesuit Centre in Guelph, Ontario.
