body and soul are holy

though we are taught otherwise

by the Religion Police

who see a variation between

the ideal and its practical applications

that worship itself comes between

all of us and the Source of Life

makes me hope I'll be there to watch

this set-up dissolve in the reality

of our sad hopes of some worldly fulfillment

drained away into the illusions that constrain us

oh what pure horseshit this divine plan

that demands our slavery to an unloving source

that kills us even as we plead for mercy
