Three dollars worth
By cosmicjoke1. Thursday, June 16, 2011 9:54:57 PM
I would like to buy just a little of the Lord
Not enough to explode my soul or disturb my sleep
Not enough to take control of my life; I'll keep
Just enough to equal a cup of warm milk,Just enough to ease some of the pain from my guilt.
I would like to buy three dollars worth of God,please
I would like to find a love that's pocket sized,
Not enough to make me love a black man,Not enough to change my heart:I can only stand
Just enough to take to church when I have time. Just enough to equal a snooze in the sunshine.
I want ecstasy, not transformation. I want the warmth of the womb
But not a new birth.
I would like to purchase a pound of the eternal in a paper sack
Guaranteed or money back.
You see, I would like to buy three dollars worth of God, please.
