17 crucifixions in just one month
not bad for the quarter
meeting the quota
don’t care an iota
of who’s on the tree
just so they don’t look like me
keep my body busy with
who Paris done kissed
on the worst dressed list
I invite the cards fall
let sleepin’ dogs lay
I’m a pro armchair QB
for every Good Friday
watch me as I even act concerned
as our cities are burned
tsk-tsking others’ pains
as I fan the flames

I’ve been resting in crosses’ shadows for eighteen years
as long as its others’ bodies
I’ll be with you in spirit
