SOME PLANET OF AN EXCUSE

Written by: RUDOLPH RINALDI

GET IT OFF
THE BACK OF THE WORKER BEE
AND PUT THE WORLD IN MOTION
TO FREE THE PATH 
TO THE SEE

GET IT ON 
THE FLOOR 
AT THE BOTTOM OF THE LIE
DEEPER AND DEEPER 
TO THE CENTER OF THE SKY

FLOATING FREE
SUSPENDED IN A SOUP 
OF ALPHABETS AND STARS
SPELLING OUT THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD 
AND THE DIRECTION TO MARS

WHAT RELIGION IS MARS
WHAT COLOR IS ITS SKIN
WHAT IS ITS SEXUAL PREFERENCE 
AND BECAUSE OF THEM 
ARE THEY THE CENTER OF OUR SIN 

OR POSSIBLY
JUST
SOME PLANET OF AN EXCUSE
