When you were baptized
to signify your new-found love,
they didn’t hold you down
nearly long enough
in my not-so-humble
Prerequisite for rebirth is death.
So cleanse thyself via asphyxiation.
Rise again in three days.
That would justify stroking your ego
so bloody bloated and hard,
Not your arrogance,
Certainly not your martyr complex
or apparently terminal
allergy to truth.
