one more left behind
but trust that "da Lawd"
will gather the kneeling and the signed
in one tremendous gust
to bear away the afflicted
who've renounced bodily delight
for keeping their souls restricted
the fellowship is bleeding
but it's the wine that cleanses
so in one wide slug and mouth wipe
lift the cup for forgiveness
