lucifer’s lament

August 30th, 2023 · No Comments

jesus loves me, this i know,
for my teevee tells me so.
he is always watching me,
his older brother, suave and free.

jesus loves me, every day,
no matter what i do or say.
i can pull the wings off flies
or spread the pretty schoolgirl’s thighs.

jesus, love me, pretty please,
it’s not fair for you to tease
your older brother in this way—
be a sport; what do you say?

jesus, don’t you love me so?
if you don’t, where can i go
to flee the angel i’ve become
and hades’ low, incessant hum?

jesus, please, don’t leave me now.
i’ll swear to any kind of vow
to keep you in my rightful place,
gazing on your holy face.

damn it, jesus, turn around!
don’t turn your back—you’re all i’ve found
who would forgive me what i do—

jesus loved me—this i knew.
