And the Gods Go On

Fundamental is only found overseas
in prayer on small mats
or in temples of those gods
and it is a savage dog when off a leash.

Conservatism is only found at home
in prayer in long pews
or in churches of these gods
and it is a savage dog when off a leash.

Politicians are found in this home
on prayerful stumps
in churches of money gods –
adding a dangerous dog, now unleashed.
