Sacrament of the Brown Faith

Sacrament Of The Brown FaithRide a pale horse,
drink the blood of salvation.
Swallow hard the palpable christ,
bathe sin in forgiveness.

Heretic kings ride in false chariots ,
on truth ridden sands .
driven by indiscretion,
intent to swallow the world whole.

Under heel of patriotism
pound innocence smooth
forging the stone
to build the altar.

Survival is the predator’s game 
victims are numbers.
The difference between prey
is only a letter.
