the goddesses toast the death of jerry falwell

lock me in a darkened room...

black velvet falwell

wall of sound


ani, lucinda, patti and grace


days on end

eardums shattered

agony and ecstasy

no reason to emerge...

for fire and brimstone jesus

deathcamp evangelicals


faith commodified

as market economics


the moral truth

is far more grey


shakespeare

couldn't have written anything more tragic

the laugh track cued

as final curtain falls


radicals and feminists

rolling in the aisles

drinking toasts to eternity


its what the goddesses would've wanted
