Vestry’s Underbelly

Saint Paul, 16 April 2005

In the vestry’s underbelly
Vibratos of dominos vobiscum
Obscure allegory with fuming censers
Wherein the unimaginative abide

In the vestry’s underbelly
Shrill shortcomings in
Illustrious adornment
Revered by bankrupt supplicants

In the vestry’s underbelly
Prescribed paeans of praise
Behold black leather missals
Notching betrayal's betterment

In the vestry’s underbelly
Depraved bottomless erections
Cloak silken vestments and
Carouse with cassocked celebrants
