Day 238 – aiding and abetting

Monday, April 26, 2010
Day 238
12:58 am

aiding and abetting
(acts of Gods?)

cut from a priests’ cloth
surely believing
yourselves to
be some act of
God

so be it then
the privilege of men
calling for the souls of
children

head whipped in
the other direction

never to turn
and face them

or grab the wrist
of a child and
beg them to run

you tremble, in
greatest awe and
fear of your brethren

never to be
challenged
you see
they
stand with infallibility

all powerful
and omniscient
ice storm,
oh, magnificent flood

you
think them,
wish them,
will them
to be
the extraordinarily
entitled,
justified
perils of the sea
