More Believable That Way

I walked through the empty cathedral
stopped
turned
looked back inside the two-storey church
      At the two rows of rows of seats
      each with pads before them to kneel on
      and slats behind each row to hold the song books
then looked to the back of the preaching wall
stepped up
walked to the back wall
looked up at the twenty foot tall mural of Jesus

good thing they pained him so tall
you know, so everyone could see him on both floors
even in the back rows

I mean, you need a big sign
to remind you what you're giving up your Sundays for

good thing they pained him so tall
more ominous,
a mean, more glorious

and it's easy to make him
more believable that way
