Days End

Post by audiofool » Thu May 04, 2017 10:31 pm

A secular hymn
to an atheist god
he calls my name
whisks me into the pod

a circular motion
with upraised hand
his mute devotees
canvass the land

with free passes
for the big to-do
the eschaton
and the whoop-de-doo

the righteous gang
are set upon
the standard bearer
is a flaming con

if it's too good
to be true
must be the work
of you-know-who
an endless void remains

a wiser man
avoids the cross
heedless ones
absorb the loss
when it pours it rains

pearls before pigs
or so I'm told
I warmed to you
your grip was cold

you were wounded
and there you bled
lost, abandoned
left for dead

now I hear
you're making strides
collecting shadows
in days the night divides

if it's too good
to be true
it must be
because of you
and the multiplied remains

a wiser man
avoids your gaze
while fools like me
caught in the maze
cause when it pours it rains

a few holdouts
at some remote location
calling in favors
for a luxury vacation.
