Michael Ceraolo – Two Poems

Deuteronomy 19:15: Twenty-First Century Edition

Witnesses shall not rise up against a person
for any iniquity,
in the absence of physical evidence,
and they should always be regarded skeptically


Luke 7:41, 42: Twenty-First Century Edition

There were certain creditors
who had debtors that should not have been lent to,
and when the debtors had nothing to pay,
the creditors frankly forgave them their debts
and waited for the government bailout

Michael Ceraolo is a 56-year-old retired firefighter/paramedic and active poet from Ohio who has had one full-length book (Euclid Creek, from Deep Cleveland Press) and a few shorter-length books published, and has a second full-length book, Euclid Creek Book Two, forthcoming from unbound content press.
These two poems are from Twenty-First Century Editions, re-writings of various literary, political, and religious writings for the 21st century.
