[ Politics & Religion ] Sucking Up To God

 
Your sunburned nose?  
It's growing an even stranger  
shade of brown  

The crucifix you shoulder  
says you're going up  
but the word on the street is  
you are going down  

The rhetoric you spewed  
fell on my plugged ears  
with a deafening sound  
 
Soon, it will be too late  
to escape your fate  
as the town pariah  
 
Gone ballistic is the masochistic  
messiah with motives far from altruistic  
the one who had supposedly come  
to save us all from ourselves  
 
Never were you here
to save anyone's soul  
other than your own  
using our backs as a footstep  
carving your way up the totem pole  
 
How in the world did you ever manage  
hammering in the final spike  
with only one hand
during your sucking up to God?  

I find it curiously odd
