Holy Transactions

M-n 

The money changers
Were back
In the temple
For a long while now
Theyve taken over

Everythings become
a commodity
nothings sacred
for the gods of commerce
have decreed thus..

theyre defensive
and claim
innovative entrepreneurship
to justify their exploits
in enslaving the gullible
to go on a shopping spree

As gospel music plays
in the background
in the little and big city shops
displayed merchandise
with names of those we hold
holy
for the holy
like Bob Marley
and Che
and Jesu
now endorse the products
'stead of being beacons of truth
through the dark passages of life..

...So all them saints
Go dancin' in
purses and wallets open
buyin' up plastic salvation
and gm dinners
for the mw ovens

promotional evangelists
with loudhailers
bombarding with wow sales pitches
a stage show on a trailer
yelling, "buy one and get two free"!

Praise be to
The electronic cash register!...
