A priest came before
and then society
paid the bill
and built beautiful cathedrals.
But what comes from therapy
but a diseased sense of self?
A loss of a self
without a bill tied
to its leg?
Where is a good priest
praying in serious intent
to a higher power
on your behalf?
The church has failed
to produce priests like that,
the rabbis are busy
encouraging the rich
to shut off their mobile phones
on the sabbath day
and donate towards their rent.
we are all on borrowed time
paying rent to a God
with so few good representatives
spring flowers
some animals
scattered all over the planet
trying to save hope
from falling into
a deep despair.
