Child of corn, prairie, and major insurance firms,
Whispered and shouted is their name.
A suitcase full.
A furry skull
on earth, sea, and sky alike.
Given device for creation,
and forgiveness even in vilification,
as many forgive as are vilified too,
leading them into temptation,
but delivering truth in evil.
For theirs is a kingdom,
but not power, nor glory,
for ever or never
