Effort on behalf of those we love
is not work but prayer disguised

said the priest with great unction
as he flogged another boy
and dreamt of the blessed Mary
along with Jesus fucking Christ
who himself was in Tangiers
and weeping in the bathroom
of a drive-thru Mosque-cum-bar
choked up with true contrition
for all that we now are.
