Baptism

The priest stood over me
in the name of the father

And he splashed me
in the name of the son

I screeched my protest
and still he splashed me

All stood by at the altar
as he splashed me

in the name of the holy
fucking ghost

I never asked for this appointment
never asked for this anointment

Lamb of God… he without sin…
etcetera,
etcetera,
eternally

Amen.

– Frank Phelan

editors note:

Sin without we, our father, etcetera. Hail mary, that’s a hoot! – mh clay
