People pray so different here-
that woman there, she wails and yells,
while that one sheds a single tear.
This man shakes a fist like ringing bells,
and this one see's a ghost appear.
I wonder just what the preacher tells
these folks to draw them ever near-
Does he weave tricks, and practice spells
to keep them held by webs of fear
for invisible demons and fiery Hells?
Or could he be just a gentle seer
who's drunk so deeply from life's wells
upon which most just lean and leer,
and who has tasted what Satan sells,
enough to know what is truly dear?
