pontificating lies

Something I found I wrote years ago. I don’t think I ever posted it here, but if so I apologize for the duplicate.

We are creatures
pontificating lies
designing illustrious
holy relics
men and women
holy sites
cities and factories
holy wealth
nation and allegiance
holy love
lust and longing
holy anger
justice liberty
and words
music and dance
and moon
holy earth
sky father
holy rituals
holy holy holy
ever and anon
holy holy
wholly to cover
our graves
brave flower petals
of no significance.
