Take a giant leap from fantasy......





Translucent children

Greet the rising sun of promise

Peeking playfully

From behind baronial skyscrapers

Take a giant leap from fantasy

Fools paradise

Welcome to the illusion of freedom

One can be homeless

In the lap of a million dollar home

This warped wicked world in which we dance

Insane insomnia

Predatory by nature

Indentured servitude

Survival of the groping blind

Forced are we

To hum along with the madness

Human basic needs

Must be maintained to a certain degree

The privileged

Far outnumbered by the bankrupt majority



Thunders expeditiously

Draft of Angels wings

Our salvation draws nigh

Sauté it all down to simple béchamel:



Belief in the unseen


Creator of heaven and earth

Requires much higher degrees of consciousness


Narrow path of persecution

So difficult to follow

In the blatant blitzkrieg of ignorance



“19 But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.”

“20 They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow the thing that good is.”

Psalm 38: 19-20 (King James Version)


Promise of eternal salvation



We are never alone

Safe in the loving embrace of Christ

Key ingredient in this real world soup du jour




Finishing touch of metamorphosis

Powerful anesthetic for the sting of misery

Binding gift

Borne on a bloody cross

Inherited gift of ultimate sacrifice

Fear not

Stand firm in the face of impiety


We feast on sacred sustenance



“31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added to you”

“32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom”

“33 Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth”


Luke 12:31-33 (King James Version)




N: milk thickened with a butter and flour roux [syn: white sauce, béchamel sauce]

File (FEE-lay) powder is used as a seasoning and thickener in some gumbos. It is made from dried leaves of sassafras trees, and is available at larger supermarkets or specialty stores.
