now try to tell me
what I already know
rub my nose in the shit
I'm trying to transcend
our efforts are futile
a greater One reaps what we sow
and mercilessly gives it back
and that is our restitution
for sins against the Holy
and somewhere in all that hardship
mercy supposedly lurks
too late for this life too soon for the next
tell me what I've already learned
and bestow the gift of retention...
