“TheTEMPTATIONofSAN ANTONIO.”a poem 17 Oct 2019 (Thurs.,St. Anthony’s Day)
“TheOnlyREALtemptation’s IMBALANCE; we’re temptedToGoLeftORgoRight;
AreYouGonnaDenyYourselfAnyAllowance, orLetYourself LoveAlittleAtNight?”
The Mystic Poet
(You were) BORN INTO TEMPTATION, Born to LOVE,
To love yourself; you APPEARED from “Above;”
You materialized from “Below,” and NOW “they”* say:
“Close THE DOORS, or there’llBeH L Lto pay.”
But, you came from H L L; it’s all the same,
Different places (conditions), a different kindOfBlame.
You THINK you’re temptED, but you’re only tempting YOU;
You are: SAINT TEMPT a SHUN; shunningYourself’sWhatYouDo.
You THINK what you do is “righteous[ness],” butThereAin’tNoRIGHT’roundhere;
There’s just YOU, TEMPTING & SHUNNING & THINKING that “Doctrine” is “clear,” When you just made it all up, for an interesting ride,
A ride from yourself; fromYourOwnDemonsYouHide;
IF YOU CAST OUT YOUR DEMONS, YOU’RE TELLING PART OF YOU,
“I WANNAbe “S P L I T,” SPLITrightIN TWO;
I wanna be a Saint, THE SAINT, who isTheUltimateSinner;
I will foreverForgoS-X andAlsoAgoodDinner.
I WILL CENSOR MYSELF, thinking OTHERS have (it) done;
This is ME, playing with me, having some fun,
Thinking that I’m a ‘s x addict’ and, therefore, I can reform my soul,
To exclude passion.” REPRESSION TAKES ITS TOLL.
IF YOU DIVIDE YOURSELF, YOUR KINGDOM WILL NOT STAND;
Let me Let you give yourself a helping hand,
SAINT ANTHONY: Stop all this fooling around,
Abstaining from LoveFoodAND forEVERpraying, (pause) (for) You’veLOSTyourSOUND.
