TAMIM-BLAMELESS

TAMIM-BLAMELESS
14.08.1997



A TREE IS KNOWN BY ITS FRUIT
NOURISHED FROM THE ROOT:
BRANCHES DRY ARE PRUNED AWAY
TO BE BURNED PREACHERS SAY;
FAITH KEPT IN RELIQUARY
FEEDS OBITUARY:
RELIGIOUS MUMMERY,
PRELATE TOMFOOLERY,
DEAD BONES, WHITED SEPULCHRE,
COLD CULT OF SEPULTURE,
DOES GOD DELIGHT IN PRAISE OF PALMERS
SHROUDED IN CEREMENTS?
IS THE LAY OF SCALDS LIKE A PSALMER'S
HEARTINTENT?

AARON'S PRIESTHOOD! BLACK SANCTUS!
CABAL OF CHURCH! LORD, HELP US!
OBSEQUIES SEASONED WITH SOULSCAT;
IDOL'S COWL ON FATCAT
THEOW AND ESNE BY SIN:
SUCH REMAIN UNSHRIVEN,
THEIR RUNLET OF CANARY
QUAFFED IN ORATORY:
PRAYERSUBSTITUTE SET ABROACH
JESUS FOR TO REPROACH
EMPLOYING FALSE THANE CHIVALRY;
PARRICIDAL DERRINGDO,
STOUP TOASTS "WAES HAEL!" VAIN GRAMMERCY!
FELON IS WHO?

A MURRAIN IS SUCH HALIDOM
REFINED BY MILLER'S THUMB;
THEIR VESTURE CONTENTIONS WEEDS,
FORNICATION ENVY BREEDS:
REGARDS NOT RUSTIC AND HINDS
IF ANY JESUS FINDS
TO BE FOLKFREE AND SCALESS
BY THE POWER OF GOD'S GRACE;
DEVILCHILD THEIR NEOPHYTE,
SORCERER'S PROSELYTE:
A CROSIER USED AS COUNTERPOISE
TENDS CORRUPTION'S EMBRASURE,
FOOLS CLAD IN LAODICEAN NOISE
WEEN TREASURE…





IF THUS MY NAME YOU SHOULD HEAR
SCORNED, DEFAMED FAR OR NEAR,
WOT I'M NOBODY AS SUCH,
NOR AMOUNT I TO MUCH;
ASHAMED YOU MIGHT BE OF ME
WHEN JUST MY FLESH YOU SEE:
HATED BY THE SYSTEMITE
OF ME FEW STAND THE SIGHT
BECAUSE I ADVOCATE TRUTH,
TRUST ONLY JESUS' RUTH;
HOWEVER, ABOUT THE LIKES OF ME
THERE'S ONE THING YOU SHOULD KNOW:
SOMETIMES EVEN ON A SORRY TREE
GOOD HEALTHY FRUIT WILL GROW!
