FALSE PROPHETS
(1/23/18)

surround
yourselves
with holy sayings

crucifixes

bibles
upon every
available
surface

play hymnals
on the stereo

go to church
whenever
the doors
are open

these words

these symbols

these gatherings

they may
comfort

but they
will not
protect you

they are only
paltry human
representations
of a spiritual connection
far more sublime

they are distractions

we do
need human
direction

but once
salvation
has been shown
to us

we no longer
need humans

given
enough time
they cannot help
but to lie
