this crusade

my proposal wasn’t hypothetical
neither were my questions about the man with the thorn crown
they never seem to be worth much if the niggas wearing them keep getting them taken
or took
we can do this a few sundays from now when god ain’t looking
he has judging eyes the old women led me to believe
none of them had led crusades
unless you include that one time against all those who refused to eat pork for reasons godly
so let’s make this official for the westerners and explain it to our people later
