she thought herself holy
holier than thou
medallions of saints swung from her neck
She was possessed by an ancient order of nuns
chanting in the catacombs
“Blessed Mother”
O ra pro nobis
O ra pro nobis
BUT HE
Shouted praises to the Lord
pulled one foot off the ground
praised the Lord
Danced native shouting
“Oh sweet Jesus……OOOh sweet JesUS”
There were drums in his soul
He held a sword to the devil
Strange sounds past over his frantic tongue
AND THEY
Found biblical phrases that called the snake to Satan –
she threw off her medallions exposing gold breasts
the doors to the Sistine Chapel flew open
He held his sword erect and led the dragon through the cavity of her desires…
Their tongues forming  horned gods and virgin sirens.
