95 Theses

All Hallow’s Eve

was the night before Martin Luther

posted the condemnation

of Indulgences on the door

of the Catholic Church.

The practice of paying for sins

that had not happened yet

was his greatest despair.

He loved his God and merely wanted a Reformation

of the church he followed.

Yet like all great rebels

he knew

something had to be done.

So, instead of Reforming the Catholic Church

he ended up

helping Protestant churches to form.

That was one trick

he did not foresee.
