Searching for Meaning but My Unconscious Died.


Barabbas acquired pockmarks
From picking at his cheeks
With a rusted nail. He did this as penance
After he watched those crucified
Wail from
Incessant pecking
Feathered dregs
Exhibit when preying upon a carcass.

After being baptized
Some will attempt to drown
Believing a death in Holy Water
Is akin to bathing
In the Fountain of Youth.

The spoils of Heaven empower conformity to happen.
What separates a fool and royalty
Is their reactions
To the same jokes.
A half-truth
Filled to relevance through amusement.
Like when Jefferson declared
That every 20 years
A revolution ought to occur.
