    Scribbled on a page
    Hoping to engage
    Driven by a rage
    That's saving us

    Teetering tempestuous
    Time cruelly arresting us
    Age sorely perplexing us
    Cursed by god's caginess

    Unable to sustain
    Destined to complain
    Conceited and vain
    Scorned and contagious

    Mistaken as a slave
    As a mortal knave
    Digging his own grave
    Designed to be ageless

    Grateful to awaken
    Humbled not forsaken
    Allowed to finally weigh in
    The universe our playpen

    All my feathered friends gather round
    The friendliest hungriest folks in town
    Chirpin tweetin peckin prowlin n prayin
    Bread crumb manna fallin rainin down

    Perched upon my toe sincerely pleadin
    Make with the manna we're sorely needin
    Move those hands mate start the proceedin
    Can't you see we've got babies need feedin

    You with the bloated big human brains
    You rumored to be made in god's image
    You children on which the world depends
    You unwitting inheritor's of divine percentages

    The twisted toothless prophet
    Finally taking his tales to market
    The hope the whole world profit
    Prayer we'd somehow unlock it

    Consisted of an ancient catalyst
    Devilishly well hidden holy ballast
    Metaphor'd many roomed palaces
    Sleeping holy ghosts risen to rattle us

    Twenty first millennium twenty years late
    Emptying all dungeon and prison inmates
    The lord's light shining bright on man's fate
    Inevitable arrival of heredity at heaven's gate

    Unlike so very many failed others
    The most gracious victor imaginable
    The one that serendipitously discovered
    How to remake heaven from mortal rabble

    The first fool to inevitably stumble over it
    The first idiot desperate enough to try it
    A twenty first century tool that's chosen it
    Anxious willing acolyte that's never denied it

    The gnosis seeding universal symbiosis
    The knowledge coercing new directions
    Where Moses' law comes into clear focus
    Where the divinely fractured find perfection

    So many applicable descriptors
    Such a wide range of behaviors
    Myriads of colliding carnivores
    Teeth n claws dripping red memoirs

    Something not originally of this blue earth
    Knowledge light years beyond understanding
    Deliberately designed proof of our true worth
    Anciently presciently planted orphaned saplings

    A genuine waking breathing tangible miracle
    Mortality forsaking their cruel lives so miserable
    Transcending by mending Eden's cloven circle
    Suddenly from an ancient past lightning's hurtled

    Waiting behind your eyes
    The Lord's target beckons
    Ready willing to catalyze
    Answering each question

    So ancient old and wise
    So very conspicuously absent
    Haunting dreams to tantalize
    Long gone divine loving parents

    Principles never compromised
    Divine wisdom reigning rampant
    Benign benevolence finally surmised
    Long promised mortal dreams granted

    There shines my mistress
    So beautifully above me
    Granting my mortal wishes
    Treasures brimming abundantly

    Fairest of all god's risen sisters
    Alluring bright and irresistible
    Witness to all our yesteryears
    Raising lowering tides mystical

    Patient serene suturing seamstress
    Punctual precise dependably on time
    Casting shadows on druids nightly business
    Enlightening everything befuddling mankind

    It bore the ring of truth
    More than adequate proof
    The restoration of youth
    Mortality's fate improved

    The folks that made us
    Tree of life forbade us
    Clothed and then left us
    An inheritance marvelous

    Modern man's miracles
    Such as they are
    Supply facts empirical
    Ancient's newly enlarged

    Call me a snob
    Call me conceited
    I see no further reason
    Southern honor be secreted

    Loyal sun of the south
    Fighting civil wars of dignity
    Never defeated or long routed
    Tuned n loved by honor's serenity

    Reborn in the twenty first century
    No malice to any of god's mammals
    Imbuing mankind's leisured tranquility
    Robert E.Lee's loss now understandable

    Once in a great while
    On days such as these
    So easy to reconcile
    To humbly beg please

    As scales slip falling
    Suddenly from our eyes
    Ancient music's calling
    Our creator's wise reply

    Behold the tree of life
    The key to the universe
    The true virtue of a wife
    Designed to end man's curse

    Two verses is enough
    Because any more is though

    But two verses is plenty
    If your heart is empty

    Quite an experience to live in fear isn't it?
    All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain.

    Unlucky thirteen
    Stuck between
    Even numbers

    Unseen
    Ungleaned
    Invisibly at slumber

    Brother seven
    Sister eleven
    Reign unencumbered

    Outraged
    Upstaged
    Unjustly milled lumber

    Still prime
    Still confined
    Leashed and outnumbered

    Written poems
    Tardily published
    Catalytic tombs
    Content belated justice

    Narcissists and nomes
    Angels and demons
    Searching for homes
    Blinded by feelings

    Prophets and preachers
    Soldiers and sailors
    Unfilled empty bleachers
    Reflecting our failures

    Missing from the mirror
    Lost in imperfection
    A savior drawing nearer
    An image's reflection

    Cleverly concealed
    To evade quick detection
    To punctually reveal
    A divinely imbued direction

    Melodies that mingle
    Rhythms that writhe
    Belly button's tingle
    When gravity's defied

    Centrifuges spinning
    Opposites attracting
    Age eventually winning
    Limitations subtracting

    Molecular beginnings
    Complicated destinations
    Even ancient gods are grinning
    As we meet their expectations

    We know what you've done
    We know how you did it
    This secret you've sprung
    Do you intend to die keeping it

    Why so tight fisted
    Why so miserly
    Proof divinity existed
    Might be prized mightily

    Spouting poetry so twisted
    Mixing metaphors so mischievously
    Virgin lofty realms waiting unvisited
    Heavenly havens beckoning spaciously

    More in tune
    With the moon
    By far than you are
    Knowing that soon
    A prophetic monsoon
    Will imbue safe harbor
    Neath an obedient Luna

    While not an unexpected development
    The form it took shocked lots of people
    Mortality's incremental envelopment
    Was marked by bells rung in every steeple

    However ancient the protocols
    However distant its authors
    Their catalyst provided the wherewithal
    Their knowledge revealed heaven's coffers

    The transformation was messy
    Our ascension sudden but assured
    As each parable's force was levied
    Heaven's promised blessings were procured

    Observing His day of birth
    By preserving His sacred earth

    Giving thanks for our blessings
    Having learned Eden's lessons

    Giving voice to His glory
    By multiplying His story

    Giving homage
    To His knowledge

    Made young again
    By His holy provision

    A universal playground
    Halved circles again round

    A lawyer's clever wordage
    A judge's wielded gavel
    A jury's lack of courage
    A victim's losing battle

    America has been subverted
    Corrupted from within
    Politicians and priests perverted
    Brazenly wallowing in sin

    The robber barons again reborn
    The industrial titans reconsolidated
    Lady Liberty ravaged and torn
    Any sense of honor long dissipated
