Prayer Poetry

All the pilgrims gather
for their weak ass Sunday blather

as stained glass saints bear witness
to prayers recited by rote
by the zombie congregation
awash in traditional hypocrisies

Sinners seeking to con their way
into happily ever after eternity

As if salvation can be bought
by slipping some coin
into the collection plate

You best take those homilies
and hymns you sing off key
a tad more seriously

Absorb those ancient words to heart

and begin to walk

the righteous walk
