Peter Wyton


Resurrect Resurrection

It’s been somewhat out of fashion for about two thousand years,
As a concept it’s been reverenced, or vilified with jeers—
Great god of all creation, by whatever name you’re known,
In your paradise of heaven, on your grand celestial throne,
Consider my idea, don’t dismiss me as a chump: 
If you send us Leonard Cohen back, we’ll trade you Donald Trump.

Peter Wyton is a poet based in Gloucester, England. He has performed his work at festivals, arts centers and other venues throughout the U.K.
