Reptile

"Be still and know ... but Still Be." This is road
straightener, pure bedrock for the soul.
When happenstance awakens Ego's toad,
his crooked croakings coax you down a hole.
Depending on how wrong you are this time,
your remedy must countermand the sewerbread
you fed yourself, convinced it wasn't slime,
but treasures from that toilet in your head.
"Be still and know that I am God." At core,
"I and my father, One." Last of the crux
angels and firstborn of the dead, at war
with pompous pretension and frivil's flux,
we swore the soldier's oath to reunite
the mammal brain with spirit's purest light.
