another false god.Abraham slaying his only son
\what sort of a parent offers up first-born?
conscripted for foreign wars,coming home with PTSD
angry @our world of wars/in conflict/with disease
and then told to tithe for more
churches who still bless war(and warriors
more false gods than true(the war it is on you
Where is the Goddess Peace?She who bangs her pots and pans
on streets(Mothers of the Disappeared)/Women In Pink/
Women in Black-those who mourn and ululate
when their very flesh is torn apart in Syria,Afghanistan/'Palestine,Iraq
whose children are imprisoned for a weed
whose need to love so huge they lay down their only body
in these streets-to OCCUPY for democracy
where is the god protecting such as they?
who stay in Oakland while abused by police
who exemplify responsible authority
self-discipline is a golden key
to unlock the cages of Guantanamo
set free Bradley Manning
Cease tasering/waterboarding
Support doves of peace over hawks of wars
Where are the brave gods defending these?
i guess it has to be we...
