Encased in the words of Most High,
And fittingly walking in Messenger’s Garments;
But retching in America’s puddle waters
Clattering in the sea of lust
Illumining in its creeds of:
‘Guard our precious way of life!’
Clothing in the Light from Messenger’s pulpit,
However, swimming in America’s puddle waters
Food for food only – shit!
Oh, ‘American Captives!’
When would you return to the Pulpit of Light?
And be enthralled in the Light of the Pulpit once more!
