The Other Bloody Mary

No way honey!

That answer forever

Cause I can see your heart beating -

Beating out of your chest

When I undress,

Beating out of your chest when I am there.

No way honey,

Never never!

Cause you’re fresh out the holy water,

Fresh out Mary the mother.

Can’t corrupt the white light, the earths hope, world’s might!

Can’t let you give in, lose course, all in the name of intercourse!

You carried the cross that I burnt for Guy Fawkes,

You wore the cross that I chopped crying “Timber!”

Hung military flags and G-strings from,

You kissed the cross I tiptoed along like a tight rope….

And fell from, repeatedly…

No way honey! - No way!

Never ever.

I wove the bloody crown around your head

(Though feel the ring you could give me contains the true thorn),

I informed Judas of the silver that would get you dead.

I told Peter to deny your name.

Oh, no way honey!

But you, you come with a loving heart like a succubus.

Do you realise you have come to a parasite?

A leech who can offer nothing, only take?

Honey no, Honey never!

I told Herod your name,

I whispered “crucify” into the crowd,

Rolled that stone in front of your cave

And I’m happy you can’t have me now!

Because it’s my excuse to love red parting oceans of other men,

Selling my body like “virgin” Mary…Magdaline.

This is the strongest section IMO

"You wore the cross that I chopped crying “Timber!”
Hung military flags and G-strings from,
You kissed the cross I tiptoed along like a tight rope….
And fell from, repeatedly"…

I think Herald must be a typo for Herod


The imagery as usual is both intriguing, provocative and intense.
I would have tried to condense it a deal more.

Very promising work this and you are showing great turns of phrase with each new piece.
