distractin burglary

told us of feeding five thousand
turned water to wine
jesus

come back from the dead

we lapped it up
yearned for more
got greedy

said the man

elect him and we could so dine
drew us a fish in the sand
he was the chosen one

that day cocaine was found in the water

our bellies fiercely grumbled
and our tongues had the sour taste
of the devious

devil shit


Drinking water in UK contains Cocaine
