a sacrament

for Dave

at the church of unholy
billy bible pimps out sally sunday school
back in the front pew
goody two shoes rips up hymnals
to roll the weed he sells
on every street corner
donny deacon leads his crew
of former choir boys
to pound out a few nickels
for the offering plate
swinging the chains of sin
in hopes of meeting that catholic gang
for a chance to even the score
for the last few converts they swiped
fresh meat is hard to come by
in this town of staggered steeples
and burned out crosses
where two or three rival churches are
there jailhouse jesus is in their midst
stirring up a ruckus
