Everyone is focused on the children
The ones who don’t understand, can’t.
Who can’t imagine why they are living
The ones who are just kids who want to play outside.
That is the right priority.
But I wonder about the process of selling your soul
So you can be part of something
So you can make money.
So that you can feel important
feel safe, feel superior, feel NIMBY, feel this land is my land
this land is not your land
So, what is the process of selling your soul?
That’s the right question.
What does it take to kiss Jesus on the cheek
And to betray everything he stood for,
Lived for, died for.
For thirty pieces of silver
And a seat at the table.
