The Past Is Closing

Spread the cheer,
The past is closing.
What do you mean — ?
The past is closing!
I just got into the scoring drive.

Spread the cheer,
The past is closing;
Todaynuisance to the needy,
Vulgar excesses for the few,
Selfish carefulness of the middle,
Blunders of the past

What do you mean — ?
The past is closing!
I just found the god within;
At the height of meditation,
Looking down, I see many gods just like me.

Spread the cheer,
The past is closing.
Yesterday winked and charmed;
Yesterday, closeted in shame,
Walked away and never looked back,
Never to be heard from again;
A heretical blink of a fading empire

What do you mean — ?
The past is closing!
It pays to keep scores then settle some;
It feels good, very good

What do you mean — ?
The past is closing!
I just got here from there,
I am yet to discover anything.

Spread the cheer,
The past is closing
Tomorrow has had its head,
But couldn’t keep it,
Trapped in excrescential error,
The Present took the liberty.

Spread the cheer,
The past is closing
Only the Present remains,
Jesus is the Present,
Everyone in the Present lives,
The past is closed,
Tomorrow is swallowed up
Only the Present remains
