Civil Private Prays

 Civil Private Prays 

I want to be priority made
delivery into the tyrannical hands of justice 
confirmed at the door of rightness
place at the alter of the officially divine acquisitions of men
exposed to be weak to my own consequences
and set Constitutionally free to be independently established 
there in this act of civil service
I will Reform my life to a wealthier social status,  
and be kind, to all men of any status up under all particulars 
respect will be given at the table of should be equal in all lawful economics 
be little or great the man

so now i do stand with no voice 
and only bread crumbs to share 
but my very small inner light flicker in the boundless night
giving Prays to The Universal Mother 
hoping she will hear my not so private prays
