The Percolation of Untruths - by Bob Atkinson

The Percolation of Untruths
(c)2014 Bob Atkinson
"... both read the same Bible and pray to the same God and each invokes His aid against the other ..." Abraham Lincoln

here we have an issue
which festers in our hearts
how could we ask salvation
when our misdeeds unruly spark

that deviant cultural condition
which keeps some from living safe
while progress of power gathered
expands corruption in its wake

as we champion positions
without facts of true belief
only what some mortal man
feeds you deviantly underneath

which lays you out for mistakes
puts your permanence in doubt
who would prolong the soul of man
who bloodshed dishes out

pouring uncaring hurt upon another
in a universe completely wild
with judge and jury looking down
not behavior of which we're proud

we move into a fabled field
with heart set on success
a world without complexity
of those who thump their chests

as we avoid simplistic violent control
by our cultural elite
tell me if in this world can we
live with freedom lacking for our feet

to show true stripes requires good
devil hides with fleece upon his head
causes us to kill, torture, percolate
his dogma on top of men

Don't tell me you're going to kill someone in the name of God, that just won't cut it !!!
