Guest Piece: “Mani’s Army” by Sparrow
I really love this poem, so much so that I asked permission to post it here. Mani is awesome and definitely protects His own. 🙂
We are Mani’s army.
We are the dispossessed, the weak, and the vulnerable,
We are children, the mentally ill, and the lonely,
We are misfits, outcasts, and off casts.
Polite society laughs at us and thinks we have no power,
Bullies torture us with their cruel words and deeds.
Little do they know that Mani protects us and guides us.
He wraps us in his silver cloak,
Whispers archaic spells in our ears while we sleep,
Watches us from the heavens,
And from the shadows when He is the Dark Moon God.
We are His beloved children.
When the time comes for Ragnarök,
We will fight on whichever side Mani chooses,
(There is some debate on which side this ancient Jotan will choose!).
We will use the weapons He has given us,
We will use the magic He has shared with us,
And we will fight like the crazy motherfuckers we are!
We will make so Him proud.
This is the least we can do for the Moon God who has given us so much
And accepted us as one of His own.
