Selling Wolves To Sheep

Hyena smiles
And jackal howls
From a crucifix adorned
Pulpit bleeding fortunes
From the predictably desperate
Spectrum blind to all
But three colors
And a penny blessing
Applauding everything
They already know
While accepting the miracle
Of an apple in reach
As a gift
They cannot give
And fervently reacting
To a snake oil salve
Expected to stick
For all eternity
Or at least
Until the next circus
Rolls through town

And why not
History knows
Deceivers don't build
Their own monuments

We do
