Kayaks in the Klondyke

Religion is a mosaic
‘let them eat cake’
and so it shall be.

Prophets I shall profit by,
but when you hit rock bottom
and there’s nowhere left to go
with
the stone floor for a pillow
I am aware of the lie,

that all men are created equal.

you can pray to your God or to
Elvis on a slice of bread,
the only thing we’re sure of is
that one day we’ll be dead.
