Marching Orders

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

In a world gone crazy, we
place cows in the spotlight and
call them wise. Bowing before
bovines, we intone pale prayers
of the evolved, enlightened,
connected, fruitless faithful:

Lead us to the Promised Land,
Where life is easy.

Give us the answers.
Give us the goods.
Give us the pleasures.
Give us the words.

Lead us to the Promised Land,
Where up is down.

Take our questions.
Take our money.
Take our time.
Take our souls.

Lead us to the Promised Land,
Where all is free.

Make for us reality.
Create for us food.
Buy for us love.
Kill for us, too.
