Tergiversationalism by Ken Allan Dronsfield

Final declaration by a child of man
kneel at the altar; pointing of fingers.
Hated arbitration at the gates of piety
reading of words inscribed on scrolls.
Inglorious chapter of swollen icy egos
of solitude found gently afloat whilst
holding the string of a helium balloon.
Special places which touch your soul;
are those the places worth dying for?
Cascading madness beyond the light
teardrops stream down wrinkled faces
a free dive into the dark depths of hell
voices scary in three part blasphemy.
A decrepit waltz in that yellow parlor
of decency in memories of absolution
trusted Crosses of devout symbolism
shovels stand by the mausoleum wall
body bags await all within that dream
rise from your rest in sanctified ground
false prophets question the loss of faith.
