A Poem: The shame of religion

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is another poem from the Reverend Andy.

The shame of religion

What do we stand for, what do we seek?
Power and wealth to bring the world to its feet
When did we turn, what evil did bite us
True humanity, is not what we stand for.

We were born pure, and full of promise
Now a road of no hope we do travel
Religion programmed us and did it well
It showed us how to walk, the road to hell

Tell us of the human spirit, we asked
They replied with eyes that glowed with evil delight
Don’t think, don’t worry, just follow our plan
Only our god can lead you to the Promised Land

Years, later nothing is better
We worship in a world full of, hate, power and greed
To spend our time killing each other, at our own speed
My god is the one the only excuse we need.

Open your, hearts, open your minds
Awaken the true human spirit, and teach us to be kind
Light the torch of humanity, so that we all can see
And banish the darkness of religion, for all of eternity

Rev Andy
