Redemption

To those who believe faith is above reason.

The face has been patched now
The stitches don’t show,
It’s easy to blend in
When the hemlines have been ripped away.

I wear your beliefs,
Learn to inhale,
Pause,
Exhale
To the rhythm of your chaos.
I speak to the ground
And claim to have found
The path to redemption.

So what do we do next?
Build a wall around our home
And pretend to not have heard
The rumble of the volcano outside
As reason gets slaughtered and roasted?
