sometimes being in the earth enrages me...

the realization that God will be of no help

and His vengeance will punish even our stumbling attempts

at atonement because nothing we'll ever do is good enough

never lifting a finger to aid us but ever ready to punish...

to gouge every whit of the price and to damn us if we dare

tell this truth and all gangsters he loves Power

even though He is the only Power there is...

and there is no care for our hurts and wounds...

just obey in the flaming farce of free choice

and even then suffer (do you think Elijah was spared

for feeding Jezabel to the dogs? she returned as Salome

and he as John the Baptist...head dancing on her plate...)

no one is one seems to be forgiven...

but you suck in the hurt and you trudge on

and it's not even your business

whether or not you're forgiven

so if God can't even pardon us for awakening to the truth

as He designed it what hell will he unleash on us

for not finding it? why shouldn't I or anyone rage

when they find out this is what it means to suffer

in the earth?
