when the red sea parts

Posted to Action Poetry

I wave my celery sticks
a soldier of the vegetable heart
like Moses
Me and Aaron
told Pharoh
to go fart
and let us pass
we angry soldiers
in love with
our jealous god
he's pissed
at you
we send back your
golden calves
and crucifexes to come
parboiled frogs and lepers
to you
and no tickets
to the glitterball fun
some chianti
and pass the fava beans
pharoh, you and hannibal lector
all you cripples of the dark
we are the sons of light
and you can bet your ass
when we get to the river
when we to our new home
you and pharoh, you don't get to come
