Divine machine

+ Signs and Symbols, around the nave-entrée
i –the distance across the young and the old;
you –the battle between the he and the she
behold, all you sons and daughters of Mary

+ Songs and Praises, in the air
miter –the office of the superior and inferior;
crosier –the significance of the all the heir
behold, all you pilgrim peoples of Peter.

+ Chant and Stories, from the great book
quill –the different between then and now;
paper –the message between what and how
behold, all you nations and tongues of his flock.

+ Wine and Bread, on the table
cup –the contrast between blood and water;
plate –the fill between human taste and desire
behold, all you brethren who adhere to Paul.

+ Gestures and Language, inside the house
us –the pray, the pay and the obey;
him –the sacrifice of death unto his prey
behold, all you tribes of the apostles.
