Scam

And beneath this speckled roof that peeks

Curiously at creasing paper catching fire

Ancient ink warns in augural shrieks


“If only burning verses would burn the desire”


But these fools, they don’t bide by subtlety

Declaring intentions at top of the lungs

Ringing through sinew to bones so utterly


Can’t seem to stand for biting one’s tongue


Trusting there’s heart within the Steel

Aching for warmth they strike the flint

And as if reading vows within Devil’s deal


Neglect the catch written in fine print


And when it breaks, oh, it breaks so wholly

No pieces to glue back in motes of dust

Rearranging every atom over time too slowly


Still wouldn’t let their essence readjust


So, yes, it’s crucial to treat each tremor of hope

As if it were the very sacrificial lamb

Whose mutilation would help the gullible cope


With the truth that in real world, faith’s a scam
