Piss Christ

Piss Christ

long before
serrano
blasphemed christ
in the jar
your messiah
was stripped
from his place 
of glorious sanctity
and tossed
into the cesspool
of greed
lies
exploitation
and violence
that is
the scum
of politics

long before
serrano
used your messiah
as a tool
for his art
you
submitted your messiah
for debasement
as a tool
of your vile masters

today
more than ever
most participate
or stand-by and excuse
taking for granted
this violation
of their messiah
their embodiment of universal love
in service
of their pompous
hackneyed agendas

so when the vandals
desecrated the photo
in avignon
it was nothing more
than a hollow gesture
for all the devotees
at setting
their piss christ
truly
free
