In Memoriam, Jerry Falwell


It's not Bethlehem on an ass
I do. It's not the eye
upon the sparrow
I know.

The long history of man and god
from castle keep to carpet bomb
is not my battle hymn.
My eyes have not seen the glory.

can you see
the way the prophet
jerks like a marionette.
No strings attached.
