Somewhere beyond the moon,
translucent and beautiful
they are perjurious and frenzied adherents
to their hollow doctrine
their collective articles of faith
devoid of admirable quality
their sect, en masse, expecting piety
because they are splendid looking.
Such paralyzing glamour
versus our ungainly bodies
yet we possess the greater cosmic power,
that of our own spiritual liberty.
