Religious dogma creates a perfect fertilizer for the weeds of hypocrisy.
-- Steve Maraboli
Love is every religion's most prominent word
but what do we see after millennia of its use
global hate making religions a sheer absurd
no deities to change us since Ares and Zeus.
On Sundays we go to the regular mass
Mondays we go on to hate with passion
to demonize, to curse, mock, and harass
in every available and imaginable fashion.
Reminds of "The Godfather", movie telling all
with mobsters appearing religious and true
but killing as if an answer to a divine call
with religious leaders giving same clue.
With a cross in one hand and a sword in other
we practice our faith which history can prove
lying by calling every human being a brother
unable to jump out of that hypocrisy groove.
It's like we just reserve a moment for prayer
imagining it will wash our soul of every sin
giving Jesus on crucifix a prolonged stare
but still with boiling blood under our skin.
So you won't hear me ever preach of love out loud
about God, about angels, and a message divine
I'm not really mingling with any religious crowd
for, my kind of loving doesn't need a shrine.
