Father, Son And The Burned Toast

In the name of the father, the son and the burned toast
Praying to the Almighty that I don't believe in, like most
May this urgent prayer travel to your ears by Priority Post

A need for a pair of eyes to parade his ego, madness to boost
Men's selfish insanity has come crawling back home to roost
Curiosity Rover searches for life on Mars, billions dollar cost

On Earth we cultivate hatred for free, children's lives are lost
Science is used as weapon of distraction from coast to coast
"I come in peace" until a profit can be found to brutally hoist
Let thy kingdom come before Martian's flesh burns like toast

Who I Am

Looking through the man in the mirror
Who I am born to be isn't any clearer
A mystic XY for the unsolved equation
Who am I? Is an unanswered question

Can I heal as a cactus not a social rant?
To become defiant as a queen red ant
A doctor, a lawyer or a skillful dentist
Not the Antichrist he's no peaceful artist

Sweet time why have you gone so sad?
"Product of abuse" reads on the iPad
Where am I? Who am I? What am I?
When will you ever apologize for a lie?

Looking at the woman in the silhouette
Coming home with a smile from the vet
Like a pound of love missing her dog
Anticipating to be kissed by a bull Frog
