The Fairy Tale of Evil: A Poem
They are telling us there are only love and fear
and all other emotions stemming from them
so that story about evil is becoming clear
just another concept from fear to stem.
Love has been glorified in countless ways
so why surprise about fear not falling behind
evil just enjoying the flipside of our love's blaze
with this morbid imagination messing up our mind.
Religious establishment cashing in on fear
and duping people with this needless worry
just a boogieman for grownups spoiling cheer
with a pretty naïve, and completely illogical story.
Every emotion seeks its expression
without a real need for an outside cue
so loving heart finds it outside obsession
and fearful one attracts reasons to feel blue.
We humans are makers of anything unholy
when somebody's brutality might surface up
then it's driving us all insane with this evil folly
and only adding to that existing emotional crap.
