Only God
(9/18/2021)


only
God

only
God

only
God

Brother Bollocks
repeats his
three syllable
mantra

his litany

his trinity

his prayer

on a continual
basis

in order
to attain
peace

to remain
at peace

throughout
each day

but the
moment
that his
mind wanders

and his
worldly wants
interfere

his sorrow
for life
returns

hopelessness
overcomes him

and he is
lost
once again

Brother Bollocks
aspires
to lasting
salvation

but knows
that his soul
is constantly
at risk

only
God

only
God

only
God
