Look Out on the Street!

March 14, 2008
Look out on the street!
Faux-doctors scalp their patients into a coma.
In a drunken stupor, their frozen
scalpels miss flesh and hit bone.

Three cheers for the Good Man,
-- for whom we have lost so many. –
At the gallows, the noose is a halo,
the hangman wears a crown of thorns.

After the relics have been stolen,
crusaders are stacked like books in a library.
People speak of statistics, and ancient lore.
They hand saviors axes and point.

Three cheers:
God have mercy
Christ have mercy
God have mercy
