Tammy Faye Baker, Blest

The Ways It Works

Baby Big and Biggie Small
drop a dime to lamb the tall
and lame the blame till after fall.

Carve seven rooms in kapok trunk
to capture Devil and his funk
keep him calm in seven stuck.

Mayan souls crawl branch to branch
from within for the chance
to enter Heaven climbing plant.

J-men roll and toke the smoke
from inner man to outer bloke
ease this walk on slippery slope.

I grope in dark to further step
carry world on lowered neck
shoulder dry and weary wet.

Lamb lay low, lamb cry high
working kapok cotton mountain side
blood of land in hand applied.
