Uniforms and Vestments
Uniforms And Vestments
Uniforms and vestments what respect they bring
Why not a policeman’s ring to absolve this guilt of mine?
Or layers of respect and richness to cowl the sinner’s name
Or touching a hem in silence or kissing a viral ring
Layer upon layer piece by piece in awe of gods and man
Love and fear to sponsor layers of isolation and trim
If god favors you more than I let his love shine from within
For uniforms and vestments strike awe in the hearts of men
For me a simple beggar’s rag a Gandhi size 38 will surely do
Or cross-draw Colt 45’s with notches in the grips and a chew
But what vestment or uniform can ease the souls need within ?
When a field of daisies singing halleluiah within the grassy glen.
Uplifts the heart and fills the soul with joy from deep within
Are loaded belts, holsters and sternness and knife creases for sin?
Or is godliness and obeying laws not synonymous with peace. love
Or giant half-understood words like using psychoisolationment
When happiness and kindness and god from deep within
All that may be needed to set us straight no terror or awe, Amen
