Redefine the Party Line
7 March 2013
Holy vestments against sin
Are worn against the skin,
But closer than underwear
Is natural body hair.
It's usually not appreciated
So normally gets depilated.
Deeply meaningful to values
Are body piercings and tattoos.
Perhaps they could be a substitute
For vestments if leaders were astute.
Or maybe an alternative solution
Would be a spiritual revolution.
Instead of wearing what conforms
To traditional religious norms
Body hair, piercings and tattoos
Become sacred instead of taboos.
