in the daily clamor
combining all our voices
we may shed all the extraneous
white noise, leaving
one mantra
spoken by us all

and recently
it has become clear
what that
one mantra
is

ready the nails ready the nails
ready the nails ready the nails

it is time
we need another
savior, scapegoat
martyr, master
things are going to
hell
and it is time
for a scouring
rid us of ourselves
and this pain, this pain
it cannot be our fault
it is time

someone must bear our weight

we need another

ready the nails
