A tested stone

After Isaiah 28:16-29

A stone is set in the land,
a tested stone, a foundation
that will not crumble, set
with obvious finality,
an answer to the terrors
and fears engulfing us,
a stone measured in feet
of justice and yards
of righteousness, measures
that sweep away
our paltry refuges, expose
our meager defenses, spiral
our feeble words of bravado
into the wind. The stone
is so obvious that we
understand and reject
its simplicity.
