Understanding

Let us pray
for we pick our noses
in strike
we strike
and they repay
and we pray
and we pray
every day.
so goes the body of christ
and every easter after
we take baths
with our fathers
and eat godiva chocolate
in bookstores
across the united nations
and we see inflations
rise to their powers
over the hours
we see whores
lay in fountains
and mountains will grow
like you'd never know
if you weren't born a prophet
and you thought that
we were crazy.
We were never maybe
torn apart as babies
like we had rabies
but maybe i'm right
in spite of the constant
worry and fear.
i have been there
and i understand.
