Christ’s toenails are on E-Bay
if you crave salvation
but don’t test for authenticity
of blood and time
just taste that sweet sweet
America style punch to the stomach,
braided through what was cane and cow,
reinventing an awake faith, standing ground
and never asking questions.
Drink it and, like us,
rot from the inside-out.
About Susan L Daniels
I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

has to be the most eccentric opening line I ever read – all the rest is indeed ” America style punch”
Thanks, Paul. Perhaps I should write after my coffee, and not before 😉
For some reason, that first line made me burst out laughing. I love your tongue-in-cheek style of writing, Susan.
Thanks, Miranda. Things have been striking my funny zone lately 😉
Witty and thought provoking write. Really well-penned. 🙂
Thank you, HA!
For how much? Do you have the link? Did he wear nail polish?
Loved this one. I like your dark-funny side. Alot.
Aw, Alice, thank you! They are available at 99 cents per, on E-bay, ROFL!
What a DEAL! I’ll take all TEN and re-sell them and make a fortune.
I will not buy any toenails on ebay…hahaha.
Hah–neither will I.
It’ the cane & cow part that might kill you before the caffeine part. Tee! Hee!
Hahaha–love the comment 😉
That first stanza makes me think how desperate people are to believe what they want to believe– Whatever it is.
I agree, Georgia.
this is reminiscent of the Jonestown massacre. Do Not! drink the Koolaid… strong write, Susan.
Hee, hee. Thanks, Jane!
I love the humor here, Susan. The metaphor seems apt to me. 🙂
God, your last stanza just hit me. It’s amazing how you’re able to express all these things that I feel. I’m definitely quoting you on that someday, if you wouldn’t mind.:)
I would be honored!
