I’ve seen Satan,
He’s got wild hair and a spray tan.
The Devil lives inside the mouths and minds of those who spout religious lines to justify who lives and dies; he’s operating on both sides.
The afterbirth of life is here,
It’s not all joy and smiles, there’s fear
and hate, distrust, mistrust, misplaced beliefs in right and wrong and choice and fate.
Beliefs belie the lie that calls for innocents to die –
that calls for innocence to die –
through hand or knife or missile strike.
And if God was ever here, he’s done.
Where is the good when all sides are wrong?
Where is the love when all hope is gone?
