Ah, Jesus, I have mastered you.
Savior unneeded, I am your lord.
I have cut you into pieces and eaten you,
I have stolen everything from you
and sold it cheap,
I have picked all your fruit
and thrown it to passing animals.
My victory has killed me.
my mastery has rendered me powerless,
my palace emptied,
I’ve been thrown on the compost,
gone down with you
into the dark grave,
bettered by death,
I am still.
I’ve eaten your flesh,
you invade me,
and I live.
