Ground

The vast majority of men hold sway
with money first and spirit not at all.
Despite the seemly things their mouths may say,
their path to higher mind remains a wall,
which no excuse or treachery will raze
no matter how they posture rectitude.
No begging to the Lord in prayer or praise
will elevate self-centered attitude.
To cast oneself as character in play
with image fixed like bayonet in place,
dooms people to be props whose passions stay
wing-less in infinity's embrace.
Deriving self from earthbound fact and force
contaminates men's deep angelic source.
