earthen soil



there simply is
no such thing
as a solitary
piece of sh*t
because we're all
the brown
on this blue ball
because we're all
made out of it
golem gremlins
carved of clay
to brighten God
by light of day
and still...
He's not amazed
and in His
infinite wisdom
and dismay
disapproves
and wipes...
washes us away
