A GREAT REFRAIN (ON HOLY SATURDAY)

from Take Me To Church


They hallowed him, a great refrain,
thunderblast the adoration;
chaos murmured into void
in goliath subjugation;

serenity colossal form
haloed in ecstatic wires;
iconoclastic lullabies
swelled ecclesiastic fires;

the gulch revered insatiable;
somnambulists with suckerpunch
ascended from the holding world,
and Hell was out to lunch.
