see...my understanding is sweet
even if my wounds are sore
and God's Vengeance is to rub
salt unsparingly in each one...
what is mercy? what is forgiveness?
the lies of power-crazed priests
and rabbis and Zoro's crew thrown in
an evil that takes one from one's acceptance of reality
and deludes them into thinking
they are masters of their souls...
and can remedy the universal processes
as if they were an embarrassing inconvenience
the feel-good lies of rationality
that exclude the world as it is
sick and contagious as all of us
oh how sweet and sad the understanding
but how hard the learning...
