It’s always struck me as peculiar
that invoking a demon by spellcasting
is cause for corruption and damnation,
while praying to a saint in similar tone
is seen as redemptive and uplifting
even if I’m asking for the same things.
Give me love, give me luck, give me looks.
Maybe we can safely accomplish the gimmies
by simultaneously appealing to both sides
and letting them figure out
who should take the call.
