the unaccountable

have a special friend---
a third party between themselves &
any conversation or action,
who resides in the sky.

have a special friend---
who they can read about in
books of fiction written by others who
needed that special friend in order to
validate any conversation or action
which they might have or do,
by residing in the sky.

have a special friend---
who listens when they cry, who backs
them when they shout, 
who acts as a third party
for others using this same excuse 
to gather & pretend 
together,
as grown adults in a kindergarten setting,
hoping one day to reside in the sky
with it.

have a special friend---
who gets used as a subtle excuse
when they murder, when they rape, when they
steal, when they burn & destroy
anyone or anything in their path &
when they praise it after doing so,
all others who pretend with them
believe in their hearts that if said special friend
allowed it to be,
then of course it was “good.”

have a special friend---
and they will remain that way
until someone holds them accountable.
