The killing of kindness

Wake me up Saturday and
we’ll find us a
latter day
Saint.

But you could paint me
vermillion
in a tutu and you too
could find me a
latter day
Saint.

And on Friday
which was a good day for some
they stripped me and hung me.

A martyr could start a religion,
but it’s already been done
and
I’m bored anyway.
