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...
