breaking point (part 2)

hail Mary
full of grace
would you be so kind
as to show me God’s face?
or Allah’s
or Buddha’s
I’d even accept Zeus
need to see someone in charge
so please don’t give me no excuse

hail Mary
full of grace
can you make me an appointment
so I can state my case?
we’re plagued by Covid
we’re plagued by racism
so many things are wrong
‘s not my intention to blaspheme
but I been waitin’ for so long

forgive my impatience
I’m no MLK or Elie Wiesel
I’m just seekin’ reassurance
of an end to this planet’s hell

so hail Mary
full of grace
don’t tell me
I should “know my place”
I’m losin’ hope
I’m losin’ faith
we sorely need the deity’s care
too many souls are dyin’
no one can breathe in this hateful air
