Believe in her

by libby   Nov 16, 2006

Virgin Mary
swallows a pill every night
to keep her clean.
She soothes her fears with skin, screaming
Believe in me! Believe in me!
She orders up acceptance
from drive-thru churches
served steaming and saturated with hypocrisy
but it never leaves her satisfied.
Is it any wonder she turns so readily
to something that makes her feel so loved?
