Religion – A Satire


The essence of thought, a boundless mind,

Envisions a world beyond the known,

“Stories of old,” to be preached and taught,

A belief, not “Truth,” the seeds are sown…



Supremacy and skill, The One spews,

Within and without the world is all,

“Creation,” the Spell enchanting us,

The Truth unknown, so sure to Fall…



The Error, the Flaw, the Crime performed,religion

A Sin it is to ask, to want more,

How can one doubt the Eternal Truth?

Or shy away from settling the Score…



Avast, Awake! The Time has now come,

Your Sins demand Penalty so dire,

Regret, Repent! Or you shall suffer,

In depths of scorched heat and icy fire…



A Sinner you aren’t, if you repent,

But if you come from the Besmirched Clan,

Your pleas and prayers cannot be heard,

For you possess no True Soul, nor can…



Sinners you are, whether true or not,

Even the worst can attain the right,

To uplift, rescue their Darkened Souls,

Pray, Repent, Follow, and you just might…



The world exists as The One intends,

For how else can we unite and rise?

The pain we feel we bring upon us,

We deserve being ruled by One so wise…
