The Fear of Religion


The Fear of Religion 



It amazes me


We burn the living 

To honor the bygones,

To revere by fear

Is how we make God

In our image

If superstition is traded

In the name of faith

If we are willing to kill 

In the for beliefs 

Then O God, make me 

A faithless, an unbeliever 

So that I remain human,

So that I remain humane 

If piety leads to vengeful ignorance 

An eternity in hell 

may be better 

Than servitude of heaven
