The Priest and His Teacher

Jesus smiled at me when I decided to no longer pray
Go out into the lands, said he
Go out and I’ll be there on the other side
I’ll be holding your walking shoes
You and me, we were meant for great things
And we’ll go out together
The invincible church consists of all human beings of goodwill, says he.
You saw that in a movie once, says I.
And he tells me to go marry a black chick, “and be on your way until the sun comes up and you’ve faded well into the day.”

The sinners are closer to God than the parishioners,
And I hear the bombs outside and the sound makes me happy.
