Holy Metaphor

The Lord Giveth
and the Lord Taketh Away
is that some holy
metaphor
for a game to play
when bored on throne?

I hate to think this way
but I’d like to say
we have a fuckin say
in day-to-day

standing tall
so powerless
over Karma’s lay of land
like some universal
orgy

we, the janitors mopping
up effects from
celestial bodies getting off

here we are swimming
in glorified fish bowl

well it all depends on
if you believe
we wanted freedom
in the first place
yet here we are
just dying to be
free
