Modern Solomon

Modern Solomon

A Poem by Brenden Taylor
"

An Italian sonnet about how leaving God because of being addicted to pornography is like King Solomon turning from God because of all his wives and concubines.

"

A modern Solomon is what I may
become, my harem on the internet;
my concubines are digitally met
where I can click and double-click away;
I like that I remember every sway
and make my browsing history forget;
I like that I can take what I can get
without commitment getting in my way.

But this is only worship of the self,
and such idolatry is blasphemous;
whene’er I want my fantasies explored,
I turn my back on God to please myself;
how sad that I can feel so scandalous
and think I’m still within my loving Lord.
