In Praise of Celibacy

in praise of celibacy,

one thing that happened to me

I ran so cheerful and free

from the shame of nudity

 

in the wake of my mistakes

I put the purest fuel in my rocket

to break free from the cycle of death and rebirth commonly found on earth

and take off on the path to paradise

with my kundalini activated meditation

spreading my love to all things and all people

I put my genital appreciation on a spiritual plane

to strengthen the peace and light and love within me

 

in praise of celibacy,

one thing that happened to me

I ran so cheerful and free

from the shame of nudity

 

what's in between the curse of for better or worse

and the socially phobic fondling and groping

of those who've given up hoping

from too many slaps and put-downs

what's there, in between

the curse of for better or worse...

and men of the church with a story up the skirt

making their own arrangements

and the sister I see working at her holy window

neatly folding gowns, never to be slid down

 

in praise of celibacy,

one thing that happened to me

I thank the lord above, for His pristine vision of love

He's penetrating me, in the name of celibacy

in praise of celibacy, in praise of celibacy
