Duplicity(Duplicity. Oil on canvas. 1970’s by Klaus J. Gerken)

the hungry ones they eat like hamsters
the starving ones they crave dessert
theres wine for everybody
and the hogs enjoy the dirt
i cant begin to tell ya
how often its been told
rust destroys the hammer
and the hammer turns to mold
golgotha was a boneyard
and calvary a hill
the cross should not be worshiped
like a gaddam holy pill
whoever is your saviour
be that as it may
but humbleness will never
force a man to pray
so keep an open noggin
religion obscures faith
its not some wooden vessel
you shape upon a lathe
