turning the other cheek

turn the other cheek
turn it!

you turned it. now, set
your own face on fire
do it now, you will
listen to your righteous self-
moralistic high-
horsed holier than

floating up above so high
like a diamond in daddy's eye
like a sheep whose sacrifice
is an artificial edifice
a cracking, fading fa├žade fronting
for prideful other-self-worshipping
tied your hands and works your mouth
sends your dreams to that dreary south

while you stand gaping, waiting praying
for everything you know is true
