Genuflect; A Divine Perversion

Holy utterance, Thy tongue
Has made cunning by a tree
To gather the holy fee
From the pockets of old and young

Thy vesture of linen white
Symbolize thy taken vows
To shepherd a sinful house
Not by staff, but with a scythe

When praying to holy saints
Carved on wood or hung on walls
Thou sell them on parish stalls
As a bulwark for the taints

Sacred waters thou has blest
Did it hinder thy abuse?
Of their innocence on pews
Now i doubt thy being cleansed

Just human, thy alibi
So thou heard the call of flesh
And thou use a virgin fresh
Anus, from persuasive lie

You omit thy being chaste
When thy staff, used to impale
The juveniles who are bale
And you punish them with haste

Faithfuls on thy presence kneel
Someone is pretending blind
Thy altar knight stood behind
Reminiscing an ordeal

With thou, when he was no one
Had brought him before thy God
Then thou started to get odd
When thy buttons, had undone

He on thy room acquainted
Gallantry of things thou bought
And promised all what he sought
If he gets his soul tainted

Marked, smeared, forlorn altar knight
Tormented and is bleeding
Torn tissues and the screaming
A slave to thy carnal plight

Pains of thy excessive drill
Pumps a soul that has no peace
And the right thing is to cease
This obedience to thy will

So at noon, he made the choice
Depart with his agony
Of thy mock divinity
With a clear and humble voice

Father, father i must say
"I cant be with thee tonight"
And this quoth the altar knight
Father quoth; You're here to stay

uhm first to comment ahehehe...
uhm the poem as i viewed it depicts the song of the 90's band Yano
"banal na aso santong kabayo"
am i?

Gerald Galindez said...

perfect!
you got it right ben... n_n

this is more concerned on the priest pedophiles molestations and rapes., as you can see in the verses...

this poem is also a reaction on the popes recent apology bout the rapes and molestations .

Gerald Galindez said...

this poem ends with an exposure of a
relationship between an Altar knight and a gay priest... the altar knight decides to end his demise in the hands of his abusive gay priest..

this piece is a reaction to the recent apology of the pope in sydney...

Meia said...

hello. this reminded of Spanish friars. I suddenly remembered my Rizal days in college...exactly, the Rizal movie. But in the movie, it was a girl though. :)

Gerald Galindez said...

i thought the altar knight symbolizes innocent beings, or nuns. well, im kinda clueless when it comes to monks and popes. the priest there is gay pala. :D

Gerald Galindez said...

Gerald Galindez said...

BeverLy's Secret said...

kathleenmaher said...

The biblical or religious cadences are both beautiful and terrible, and utterly perfect here, where the truth can not escape.

flipt said...

haha...a satire on priesthood... wait, altar knights are "sakristans" right? the priest is gay (and a pedophile)... tsk tsk...

Gerald Galindez said...

@ beverly... nice to know that ...

n_n

Gerald Galindez said...

thanks for the very encouraging comment kathleen, you've always been one of my writing inspirations...
yes,i believe its terrible and beautiful...

thanks again...

Gerald Galindez said...

@flipt.

yes flipt, they are the "sakristans"
the ones who assists the priest in holy Eucharist rites and other technicalities...

the molestations occur after the eucharists... in the priests room.
here is the verse..

"He on thy room acquainted
Gallantry of things thou bought
And promised all what he sought
If he gets his soul tainted"

Jo said...

"...depart with his agony of thy mock divinity..."
Gerald, where do you become so inspired?? Honestly, for such poems to come from such a young mind...
Sorry I've been swept up into oblivion lately; Life has been pressing but now I can come back to rest in some of my favorite haunts *whispers "satirical poetry"*
Yours,
Jo

Im not afraid to write..
all the thoughts are so kind to me...
all words are tame., everything that
crosses my mind, i dont hesitate to write...

as if, all this things came out for a reason..., for me to express,
with the use of my pen, guided by my hands, controlled by my brain, and borne of my heart....,,

my favorite color is black...
black is my color, and is the element of all my poems...

Jo said...

poetically put, my wonderful friend... you have no idea how you inspire me.

Xegben said...

the song was alright...
catholic priest now a days are known for that activity...
and people started labeling or sterotyping catholic priest for that..
tsk tsk...
priest are only human
they are meant to have mistakes..
but those mistakes should be answerable to the people, the believers of catholic faith...
and to our Almighty God.
for me i codemn those acts...
priest should practice what they preach...those priest,
they are shepherds who let their flock astray...

Xegben said...

uhm i mean the poem was alright...omit the song word from my first post lol

Gerald Galindez said...

thanks Jo. n_n its so nice to know that i inspire others...
thanks JO

Gerald Galindez said...

perfectly said ben....
im glad you realized that....
its really that bad when the vows are
broken.... and the innocents stepped down.
n_n
thanks..

Xegben said...

uhm yup...im not really religious person..
but i have my faith...
and i believe my faith and conviction is strong...
i may condemn those proest but that didnt mean im losing my faith in catholic church..
still i only prayed and hope that this damage adn attack to the church will soon be resolved..

btw...any comments about the ongoing ARMM-BJE dispute?

Gerald Galindez said...

yes, you know what,?
i believe in the saying that, salvation is personal... it is not by religion... it is YOU...

im so cold too in mine...
but i have my faith. same as yours...


about the important matter...
i strongly disagree bout the extension.... it is very detrimental, it is the most disgraceful that will happen in North Cot.
pero wala na akong magagawa. tapos na eh... tapos na bah?

Xegben said...

i cant believe our govt.
they act as if they own the whole country.
damn...we will be their sacrificail lambs

Gerald Galindez said...

WOW., our government tolerates the harassment of MILF on some poor villages of N cotabato... by burning and stealing properties of poor villages...damn esperonnn!
