This Priest of Yours.... (We are not to blame)

This Priest of Your...
(We are not to Blame!)

June 11, 2006

O

What I dislike about this priest of yours
is what I do not really like inside of me
How our ebb and flow erodes your shores
since we were both cast into Her sea

He, like me, became obsessed with You
We are both at the mercy of Her powers
You, like her, have become vast and blue
Since we broke but gave up not our vows

What I donít like in your man of the cloth
is his failure to mesh his words to his action
He knows higher Love, but heís become sloth
You, like Her, suffer now His dissatisfaction

He, like me, must make some bold decision
Either way, we must now set you both free
Chose to seize Loveís most beautiful vision
or deny it, turn our backs, and just let You be

What I donít like in your servant of God
I donít like in myself, though I'm godless
He wonít give up His faith to kneel on Her sod
And I wonít give up godlessness for my Goddess

But what I do like about this priest of yours
is that heís seen enough to know whatís right
He doubts now his churchís one god , its morals
Through your femininity heís found greater Light

What delights me about your man of the cross
Is what he sees through his church-wall cracks
Your Light shining beyond leaves him at a loss
Our Love promises the holy balance His lacks

But what I donít like in this catholic clergy man
Is what we witness in too many of his brothers
This jealous authority held too high over woman
The patriarchal abuse of His power over others

But what I rather do like about you and me
Is our Beliefs and Hearts are one-in-the-same
Though hurt we have been by their hypocrisy
We are the stronger ones - we are not to blame!
