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


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
