What Our Devotions Offer Us

“Other concoctions
To secure the children, love,
Wealth, or power we desire.”
Check, check, check, and check.

We pretend to each other
We care about God,
Consider our ancestors,
Practice the Dharma,

Love Mother Nature,
Crave social justice,
Want to be good citizens,
And all the rest. But, Jesus,

Check out any faith healer,
Ask any fortune teller,
Eavesdrop on anyone’s prayers.
You’ll know what we care about.

God understands this,
And so do the gods.
They can’t help our desires, but
They pretend right back to us.
