Cataclysmal Prayer

Cataclysmal Prayer

Oh Dear God
I’m wailing on my wall
for a travesty to befall
Please
Send an earthquake from your hand
split this waisted arid land
Let all mankind end their feud
For this difference is a lie
No more children need to die
Tis a man-made sinful act
Staged upon a simple tract
There was one who got the coat
And the other got the goat
Split these brown eyed tribes forever
Forge a gouge in your grand endeavor
Seems a seam can not be sewn
Who has tossed the first real stone
 
Hear my cry Ojala
Open wide the gap between them
Let no man divide his heart
When head drives this strife between him
In one world of human kind
All blood runs the same direction
All prayers seek the same protection
All thoughts spring from the same loin
As an infant seeks it’s first light
And breath responds involuntaire
A blessing yes
But also curse
So shall I sing too from haloed verse
If from deep within our core
Must you draw up molten earth
So To Stop the endless battle
And to kill all senseless rage
This wedge must be inverted
Lord
By cataclysmal Sage
Has not Mahoma’s wisdom taught us
That each generation blessed
Will grow past their fathers ignorance
And to suckle from your breast
A single circle is but one
Infinite in the whole
As that is what I pray to see
And promise to uphold.
