Long I hoped for purity in pleasing the One

But what did I know of the One's reality?

I simply give in to weakness and folly

And said, "Fuck THIS!" after more times

Playing the fool than I wanted or needed to--

To hell with pleasing everyone else--up to and including God--

I was trained for mercy and forgiveness but found

Only cruelty and spite and ruthlessness--

God--who has no love--but plenty of vengeance--

You all deserve each other--

To hell all of you can go--I've gotten over my own stinking

Fake holiness--I wallow in my pitiful and fleeting

Earthly happiness--and I don't care--I've stepped free--

No matter what comes after--for now I've gotten away clean
