far from salvation

by January 17, 2012 0 comments

It’s easier to wish on stars
when stuck with reality
as far as intentions go –

I’ve laid a graceful plan
that I hardly keep
I’ve been observing
the conservative right
pushing their religious views
Alienating more than half the population
is as solvent as drinking beer
and reading the Bible
As I do

It’s wiser to keep such things separate
since we all fall short of the glory
We’re deserving of cold astray nights
far from the sun
that grand star
all seeing eye
Could be a version of God

editors note:

The graceful plans are hard to keep. Beer goes down easier out of the hot sun. Wish away! – mh
