You build your walls
of prefabricated bricks,
maintain them with small talk.
You string your tricks like colored beads,
wearing your wonderful deeds
like a necklace.

Your fumes overwhelm,
pernicious & pungent -
down the chute & up the shaft -
but you're too polite
to cause a draft.

You smash the flesh
of the messiah into pulp
and print your daily news on it.
Tear the hearts of human souls apart,
cage spirits in law books,
and you call it justice.

Who the hell are you?
What is your name?
Why do you not live for love
and sing songs of beauty & truth
unto the heavens?

Identify yourself!
Behold... you are a shadow
in the shade
and when the light strikes
you disappear into
