The Blood Of The Covenant [Day 13]

Mother talks, mother speaks, mother tells
her children all her disciples, all the holy words
picked and christened with sincerity and respect:
mother talks, mother speaks, mother tells,
till her children are asleep.

Around the merry go round, there’s each:
the God, the Messiah, the Mohammad,
a fine, fine gathering- parts of a whole,
parts of the parts divided in their loud whispers
of faith, of love, of trust, of brotherhood

In the garden which it sits in, there’s no greenish
green, but quite a lot of yellow: a dirty withering exhaust
and the stark red of the merry go round is the bloody
brown of rusted promises, stained with the air of lies,
defeat, cheat, or sheer barbarity, quite bitter-sweet,

The sky’s a jolly fellow, and though even it has remorseful days-
years, centuries in this case- it keeps quiet in its routine of
sunshine, sunset, no rain: the Gods demand sacrifices, they demand
love, faith served with a fine and mutual taste of inhumanity, but you
must remember, the blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb:

Mother talks, mother speaks, mother tells
her children all her disciples, all the holy words
picked and christened with sincerity and respct:
mother talks, mother speaks, mother tells,
till her children demand death.

      • Yes, indeed. Psalm 51:16-17: “For if thou hadst desired sacrifice, I would indeed have given it: with burnt offerings thou wilt not be delighted. A sacrifice to God is an afflicted spirit: a contrite and humbled heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.” Are you Catholic?
