James Jefferys - Ornaments

… And without a word, he fled
He knew his edge was ornamental
It was just something that had never actually been said
Just to think of how he spent all
His days as a voice, booming from the darkness
Selling his meat at the market -
Bending out branches from a broken basket -
Claiming the rest are destitute, barren -
He's not necessarily the best, he's just apparent

Rolls up his sleeves,
Shows us his arms
He's pleasant in essence
When he's not causing harm
It's hard to believe
Only two days ago
He breathed in the sea
And burned in the snow

He breathed in the sea
And burned in the snow
Followed the stragglers
And showed where to go

He played with us
Broke bread with us
Prayed with us,
Despaired with us

He played with us
Broke bread with us
Prayed with us,
Despaired with us

He played with us
Broke bread with us
Prayed with us,
Despaired with us

He played with us
Broke bread with us
Prayed with us,
Despaired with us

So seasons sailed by, and we saw sense
Reason showed us ornaments
Not screaming or slithering with slime or scandal
Just sitting silent on the mantle
