Penance

Pray little lamb
Beg for forgiveness at the altar
Let your knees marry the carpet for a thousand days and a thousand nights
Foolish child
Shameful and blinded
Whip her with rose petals and whip her with thorns
Bathe her in the wine the Lord turned from water
Pay your penance Agnus dei
Cross three times the silver across your palm
Worship him as he breaks your heart with a hammer
Penance for your sins and
Penance for your crimes.
