Anyone can photoshop walking on water,
also, scientists will speak of salt water, floating ice,
viscosity, density, surface tension et cetera
to explain that you didn’t actually walk on water.
Anyone can rise from the dead, 2pac has been
spotted every time the UN needed a distraction.
In fact, a gypsy pushed their fingers
into the craters in his chest & they weren’t
even in doubt, it was for a selfie.
Pac didn’t ascend and we know why,
ever since a bored lad resting under an apple tree
caught sight of an apple falling like Iscariot’s body
after the rope broke under his dead weight
& the bored lad sought to know why
objects never fell up & why some have spilling
insides when they touch the ground.
What do we do with soil blackened by blood?
we pour water on it like we do on all the isms
that form our mountains & hatch our albatrosses.
And also, people won’t wait for Peter’s crow,
they will google you
& only show their favourite parts of the results
so if you won’t change water into wine,
don’t walk around saying you’re Jesus.
